George Stokes, former chief executive of North Carolina’s state employee health insurance plan, claims he was unlawfully fired and that lawmakers spread inaccurate information while ousting him.
House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman and his Senate counterpart Tony Rand said Stokes was fired because the plan’s finances fell $115 million short of projections. Lawmakers said the shortfall could cause future rate increases.
Stokes has hired an attorney in hopes of clearing his name without resorting to litigation.
