On the same day that President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) filed his
challenge against the law's requirement that all U.S. citizens purchase health insurance coverage by 2014. While U.S. District
Judge Henry Hudson ruled in favor of the state late last year (Psychiatric News, January 7), 4th Circuit Judges Diana Gribbon Motz, Andre Davis, and James Wynn rejected that lower court's decision on the
ground that the individual mandate "imposes no obligations on the sole plaintiff, Virginia."
