Value Behavioral Health V. Ohio Dept Mental Health
966 F. Supp. 557 (U.S.D.C. S.D. Ohio, 1997), representing intervening party. Claim involved the alleged improper award of a $177,459,000 state contract for the provision of mental health services. Issues included whether or not the federal courts had jurisdiction to enjoin the state from making an award because of the 11th amendment to the United States Constitution, and whether a civil rights action could be maintained under 28 USC 1983. Court ordered the injunction, which order was vacated at the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals when the plaintiff was acquired by the intervenor.
