AG agrees to release DC mayoral documents

Monday - 1/13/2014, 5:21pm  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- D.C.'s attorney general says he has given the city's U.S. Attorney all mayoral documents relating to a settlement between Washington and its former Medicaid contractor.

Attorney General Irvin Nathan said Monday he will release all documents relating to a $7.5 million settlement between the district and D.C. Chartered Health Plan.

Nathan says U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen has agreed not to claim that the disclosure is a waiver of the district's attorney-client privilege.

A spokesman for Machen tells The Washington Post that the deal does not assure that the office will get all relevant documents.

The 2011 settlement with the now-defunct Chartered Health came after owner Jeffrey Thompson said his firm had not been adequately reimbursed for the rates it was paying to children's dental providers. He settled for $7.5 million.
