BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -- The state appeal court in Baton Rouge says Louisiana must give a fired contractor records about cancellation of its $200 million contract to process Medicaid claims.
The Jindal administration canceled Client Network Services Inc.'s contract after news about a federal grand jury subpoena to look into it.
The Gaithersburg, Md., company says the documents will show it did nothing wrong. It filed a wrongful termination lawsuit last year.
The 1st Circuit Court of Appeal ruled Friday in an open records claim.
Louisiana's attorney general said giving CNSI the records would interfere with a criminal investigation.
Assistant Attorney General David Caldwell tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/1dl7MyH ) Louisiana won't appeal Friday's ruling. But he says the state will fight release of records that might hamper specific parts of the investigation.
