Taylor was fired in February, but Perry continues to work for DHHR.
According to Stucky's order, she is still assigned to a cubicle in the Diamond Building in downtown Charleston, away from the DHHR's main offices, where she performs document reviews and "other diminutive tasks far below her professional qualifications or her job description as Deputy Secretary for Legal Services."
Regarding Perry and Taylor's allegations of gender discrimination, Stucky notes in several places that DHHR Secretary Rocco Fucillo replaced the two female lawyers with a man.
Stucky's order also indicates Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin's office briefly was involved in the bidding controversy.
When former DHHR Secretary Michael Lewis retired unexpectedly and Tomblin was charged with picking an acting secretary, representatives from the governor's office asked Perry to prepare a memo listing any potential legal issues on the horizon. Perry noted the advertising contract could be controversial.
On July 9, 2012, a member of the governor's staff told John Law there were questions about the contract. Erica Mani, the governor's former deputy chief of staff, spoke to Taylor several times that day and on July 10 about the issue.
According to Stucky's order, Mani told Taylor that if she and Perry had concerns about the bid scoring, "then the governor's office had concerns as well."
Mani later phoned Taylor to say the governor's office would not get involved and would not request a review of the bid, according to Stucky's order.
DHHR spokeswoman Marsha Dadisman referred comment on the court order to the agency's attorney, Chuck Bailey. Bailey did not respond to messages left for him Wednesday evening.
Tomblin spokeswoman Amy Shuler-Goodwin said the governor's office did not get involved because the Inspector General's Office already was conducting an internal investigation.
"Secondly, our office was not a party in the lawsuit," she said.
