Judge bars CA from cutting hospitals' Medi-Cal reimbursements

U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder in Los Angeles Wednesday granted the request from the California Hospital Association for an order to stop California from imposing the reductions, saying the hospitals had met their burden of showing irreparable harm if she didn't halt the cuts temporarily.
