Wicomico Nursing Home v. Padilla (P)

Plaintiff nursing homes allege that Maryland agency heads wrongfully denied their residents Medicaid benefits, in violation of the 14th Amendment and several federal statutes. The district court properly dismissed their complaint for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction and failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

The nursing homes failed to allege that the residents are disabled within the meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act. They also failed to plead that any resident’s alleged disability motivated the agencies to deny Medicaid benefits.

Affirmed.

Wicomico Nursing Home v. Padilla (P), No. 17-2033, Dec. 6, 2018. 4th Cir. (Agee) from DMD at Baltimore (Bennett).
