Former state Sen. John Ford's federal TennCare fraud and corruption convictions were tossed Thursday morning by the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
The court specifically found that Ford's failure to disclose that he was working as a consultant for a TennCare contractor while he was a state senator voting on policies governing TennCare wasn't a matter for the federal courts. It was instead a matter for state government, the court ruled.
