  • My Take on Virginia in the 4th Circuit & Virginia's Tornado Victims

    From the Cuccinelli Compass:

    "Two weeks ago, we had our oral argument in Virginia's case against the federal health care legislation - specifically against the individual mandate. It was an interesting day, and I wanted to offer you a few reflections on the hearing...

    It will likely take a couple of months for the 4th Circuit to issue its order in our case. If we win, I suspect that the federal government will NOT appeal to the Supreme Court, rather, they would attempt to drag the case out by seeking what is called "en banc" review. That means a rehearing by the full 4th Circuit - all 13 active judges. Only then would whichever side loses at that hearing be able to appeal to the Supreme Court."
