Obamacare lawsuit to be heard in Hattiesburg

A federal judge has set a bench trial date to hear arguments that the attorneys who crafted them say are a unique challenge to the constitutionality of the health care reform law.

U.S. District Court Judge Keith Starrett, who presides in the Hattiesburg Division of the Southern District of Mississippi, has put a case with numerous plaintiffs including Gov. Phil Bryant on the calendar for the term beginning in October.

Bryant and 10 other Mississippians filed the lawsuit in April 2010, broadly challenging the constitutional merits of Obamacare.
