Referral of Agency Reports
State of Wisconsin
Department of Health Services
September 1, 2011
To the Honorable, the Legislature:
A519 Section 227.485 (9) of the Wis. Stats. requires the Department to submit a report concerning decisions and resulting payments of attorney fees and related legal costs. Attorney fees and other legal costs are to be paid whenever the opposing party to an agency's Chapter 227 hearing prevails and it is determined the agency's position was not substantially justified. The attached report reflects payments made during SFY2011.
In addition, under 814.245 (10) of the Wis. Stats., the Department is required to report any awards granted to the Department regarding frivolous motions brought against this Department. In SFY 2011, no motions of opposing parties were found to be frivolous.
Consequently, the Department has no awards to report.
