Virginia attorney general urges judge to let suit over healthcare law proceed

Washington Post, June 8, 2010

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II told a federal judge that he should let a suit challenging the constitutionality of the federal healthcare law proceed and deny a request by the Obama administration that the case be dismissed. In 41-page memorandum, Cuccinelli argued that federal lawyers acting on behalf of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius were off base when they contended that Virginia has no standing to sue over the law, a key claim of the government's motion that the case be dismissed, the Washington Post reports.
