Civil Rights – Medicaid Program – Former Governor’s Liability

Plaintiffs’ allegations against former Governor Nikki Haley relate simply to her alleged supervisory responsibility as governor, and there is no evidence that Haley was personally involved in the reduction of plaintiff’s Medicaid services, failure to provide adequate care, or alleged misuse of the administrative review process. Therefore, to the extent Ambassador Haley remains a party to this action, she is entitled to summary judgment.

Motion granted.
