Amicus Brief: Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy v. Reinhard

NSCLC was lead author in an amicus brief that argued that the opinion of an appellate court threatens the supremacy of federal law.  The case appeals the Fourth Circuit’s decision in a case involving a state agency that sought to obtain medical records pursuant to federal law to investigate abuse and neglect. The court said that VOPA, because of its status as an independent state agency could not sue state officials in federal court under Ex Parte Young. The case has been argued but not decided. Read the amicus brief.
