(Providence, RI) -- The lawyer who reportedly missed a deadline to appeal a costly court decision for the state has resigned ahead of a termination hearing, according to Rhode Island Secretary Health and Human Services Secretary Eric Beane. The court ruling made the state liable for about eight-million dollars annually since Fiscal Year 2017 in a case involving Medicaid reimbursement rates for nursing homes.

Raimondo resisted calls from critics to fire Beane, whose department is still reeling from the "UHIP" computer debacle.
