UnitedHealth Group sues California over fine
Los Angeles Times

Setting up a major legal fight, UnitedHealth Group Inc. has sued California’s insurance commissioner to block his attempt to fine the insurer $173.6 million for violations during a botched 2005 acquisition.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Orange County Superior Court, is the latest twist in a long-running political drama. Four years ago, California sought a jaw-dropping fine of nearly $10 billion against UnitedHealth, the nation’s largest health insurer.
