LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Two mental health companies involved in a bribery investigation are seeking a temporary halt to their Medicaid suspension.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1xl46lf ) reports attorneys for Trinity Behavioral Health Care System Inc. and Maxus Inc. asked a federal judge Wednesday to grant a temporary injunction.

The order would allow the companies to continue receiving payments from the state’s Medicaid program while they continue fighting the suspension by the Arkansas Department of Human Services.

Last month, the state agency suspended the companies after it identified and accused their owner Ted Suhl of giving bribes to an ex-deputy department director. Suhl has denied any wrongdoing.

A department spokeswoman said Thursday that the agency hadn’t been formally served yet and doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
