Tennessee is asking a federal appeals court to throw out a class-action suit claiming the state left thousands of TennCare applicants in limbo by failing to rule on applications in a timely manner and refusing to explain delays. Last fall, a federal judge approved class status for the applicants and ordered the state to provide each one with a hearing to explain the delay. The state is appealing to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Oral arguments are set for Thursday. Memphis Daily News has more from the Associated Press.
