RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Virginia's attorney general is seeking a U.S. Supreme Court review of his bid to strike down a major element of the Obama administration's health care reform law. Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said Thursday that it makes sense for the nation's highest court to consider the challenge to spare states and the private sector expenses related to a law that
he says could be declared unconstitutional. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond is scheduled to hear the case sometime between May 10 and May 13 in Richmond. Opening briefs are due Feb. 28. The Justice Department is appealing U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson's Dec. 13 ruling that a provision requiring most Americans to buy health insurance or pay a penalty is unconstitutional.
