Virginia v. Obamacare
Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli
In the first substantive legal ruling on President Barack Obama's health care reform law, a federal judge rejected the Justice Department's request to dismiss a lawsuit from Virginia's state government challenging the reform's requirement that individuals purchase health insurance. Politico has a story here. The Jurist has a more detailed article here outlining the subject matter jurisdiction question raised by the Obama administration. A copy of the seven page complaint can be read here.
