Tenth Circuit: Opinions, 6/17/10

The Tenth Circuit on Thursday issued one published opinion and five unpublished opinions.


In Price v. Wolford, the Court reversed and remanded the district court’s decision as to the reduction of Petitioner’s lien on the settlement. The Court rejected Petitioner’s jurisdictional challenge as Petitioner was properly joined through intervention as a nondiverse defendant. While Petitioner did not timely file for an evidentiary hearing to challenge the reduction of the lien, the district court abused its discretion by finding clear and convincing evidence that the reduced amount of the lien could be attributed to medical care paid by Medicaid; the evidence provided to the court was insufficient to sustain the reduction in Petitioner’s lien.
