Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli appeared last night on Greta Van Susteren’s show on Fox News, and declared that he will file a lawsuit against the federal health care bill as soon as it is signed into law, an event that is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. ET today.

“We’ll be in court tomorrow [Tuesday],” said Cuccinelli. “We’ll file in the eastern district of Virginia, the Richmond division, in the ‘rocket docket.’ And we’ll be off to the courts to question the constitutionality of the individual mandate in particular.”

He affirmed that the briefs are already written, and ready to be filed.“I don’t think noon is unreasonable,” Cuccinelli also said, explaining that his office is just a block from the courthouse.

“Filing is not a problem,” he said. “Weather won’t even be a problem.”
