3/23/10 Complaint for Declaratory and Injunctive Relief filed today in the case of Commonwealth v. Kathleen Sebelius
Our AG is living up to our state’s motto: Sic Semper Tyrannis!
OK, so with the other filing in Florida, that is two different federal courts by 13 or more states. Is there a third court for good measure?
And so it begins. Godspeed and may all 50 states follow!
Is the the court aka the “rocket docket”?
GOD bless him. As I live in the People’s Republic of Illinois, I can only look on with envy.
It is. Sic Semper Tyrannis!
Maryland will not. O malley is busy fellating Obama.
Ken Cuccinelli is awesome and hopefully the rocket docket will push this through quickly. Will an injunctive relief case get priority?
Sic Semper Tyrannis that.
There is no severability clause in the statute. If one part gets chucked - the whole thing goes.
Virginia has a statute protecting its citizens against individual mandates. Since the Federal statute is unconstitutional, there is no supremacy clause issue here.
The Commerce Clause does not apply. Since there is no commerce if someone refuses to buy Health Insurance.
It appears to me that the complaint leaves the Judge wiggle room to issue a stay on enforcement and execution of this act pending resolution.
You and me both...there is no use wasting our breath on any of these nincompoop Illinois politicians!
I am sure McCain, Crist and Graham-nesty are assisting.
I also thank the Lord I and others got off our rear ends and got this man into the AG’s office.
Now, we need an honest judge. :)
They need a suit in multiple circuits - then if there are conflicting results, the Supreme Court will be forced to take up the issue.
There is nothing better than being a native Virginian :-)
I am sure careful consideration has been given to all of those things prior to the filing of the suits.
I’m not a lawyer but I think if multiple districts and circuits are involved, it can get moved over to the DC Circuit. This may grease the skids to get it to SCOTUS.
