The Douglas v. ILC case raised the important issue of whether preemption under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution can be utilized to bring a claim that a state law conflicts with federal Medicaid law.

Hear a panel discussion of strategies for litigating preemption claims in Medicaid, immigration, and other safety-net and civil rights cases in light of the February 22nd decision.
