Three former U.S. attorneys general have filed court papers supporting Virginia's lawsuit challenging the federal health care reform law.
A friend-of-the-court brief was filed Tuesday by Republicans William Barr, Edwin Meese and Dick Thornburgh in federal court in Richmond. They generally echo Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli's claim that Congress doesn't have authority to require citizens to buy health insurance or pay a penalty.
The Obama administration's insurance mandate is the chief issue in Cuccinelli's lawsuit, which U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson refused to dismiss in August. Another hearing is set for Monday.
