Virginia wins bid to challenge health care law

The Obama administration lost an early legal skirmish over the new health care law Monday when a federal judge declined to dismiss the state of Virginia’s lawsuit challenging a key part of the landmark legislation.

U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson did not rule on the central issue in the lawsuit brought by Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli – the new law’s requirement that most Americans buy health insurance beginning in 2014.
