On October 21, 2002, the Supreme Court let stand a lawsuit accusing North Carolina of condemning poor children to inadequate dental care by keeping Medicaid reimbursement for dentists so low that most of the state's dentists won't see covered patients. In the case of Antrican v. Odom, the state had argued without success in federal district court and the court of appeal that it cannot be sued by people who claim that the state is not following federal Medicaid law. The Supreme Court on Monday declined without comment to hear the state's appeal of the Fourth Circuit's decision in favor of the beneficiaries. See Antrican v. Buell, 158 F. Supp. 2d 663 (E.D. N.C. 2001), aff'd sub nom, Antrican v. Odom, 290 F.3d 178 (4th Cir. 2002) cert. denied, No. 02-220 (2002).
