Cuccinelli To Update Health Care Lawsuit On June 16 Webcast

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on June 16 will Webcast an update on the lawsuit he filed against the federal government's health care law. It requires, for the first time in American history, that Americans purchase something in conflict with Virginia's Health Care Freedom Act. Three days ago, the feds filed a routine motion to dismiss the suit. The commonwealth will respond to this motion by June 7. The federal government then has until June 22 to reply to Virginia's response. At that point, be prepared, as the case will likely accelerate. Toward that end, the attorney general promises to keep Virginians in the loop about the ongoing legal process. Thus, the Webcast . . .

. . . to discuss where we are on the case, what you can expect going forward and the constitutional issues involved. ... I wanted to make sure you have a chance to participate in the health care discussion.
