"A federal appeals panel dominated by appointees of President Obama heard arguments yesterday in two Virginia lawsuits challenging his healthcare overhaul. The three-judge panel of the Fourth US Circuit Court of Appeals vigorously questioned lawyers on both sides, but the most spirited exchanges focused on the central issue in both cases: whether the law’s requirement that individuals buy insurance is constitutional. Federal judges in Virginia split on that question in the lawsuits, one filed by Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli and the other by Liberty University." (05/11/11)
