Corrected Link for case of M.M. a Minor v. The County of Carbon Highlighted on Tort Talk Yesterday

 Yesterday's Tort Talk post covered the case of M.M., a Minor v. The County of Carbon, No. 18-CV-2341 (C.P. Carbon Co. Dec. 29, 2021 Nanovic, J.).

Below is the corrrect Link for the decision.  I apologize for any confusion that may have been caused by the faulty Link.

In this decision, Judge Roger N. Nanovic addressed the issue of whether a minor Plaintiff was liable to pay a Department of Human Services/Medicaid lien arising out of a motor vehicle accident case in a matter where the Defendant had obtained a favorable ruling prior to trial on a Motion In Limine to exclude evidence at trial of all medical bills because it appeared that those medical bills were covered by a policy of insurance.

In the Opinion, Judge Nanovic found that the Medicaid payments were not paid under any policy of insurance and that, therefore, the lien must be paid back out of the Plaintiff’s settlement proceeds.
