Sacramento County Sued for Denying Health Care to Poor
In a lawsuit filed in Superior Court, Legal Services of Northern California alleges that Sacramento County is denying General Assistance recipients access to medical services. In addition, the group argues that the county is automatically deducting $40 for medical care from retroactive grant awards even when recipients could not use the services. County officials have denied any wrongdoing.
