Healthcare reform appeal case Tuesday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Virginia's lawsuit appealing the new national healthcare law will take center stage Tuesday in Richmond at the federal courthouse.

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli won the first round in court, arguing successfully that the portion of the law requiring the purchase of health insurance is unconstitutional.

The federal government is appealing that decision. The case will ultimately go before the U.S. Supreme Court.
