Michael Wallace Will Represent State In Healthcare Lawsuit
The AP is reporting that Haley Barbour plans to join the multi-state lawsuit challenging the new healthcare legislation in mid-May. This comes after Attorney General Jim Hood said thanks, but no thanks to representing the state but releasing Barbour to hire someone on his own.
We have learned that Jackson attorney Michael Wallace will represent the state at no expense to the taxpayer.
You may remember that name before. Wallace was appointed by President Bush to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in 2006, but his nomination was blocked by Democrats and Wallace eventually withdrew his name. He is currently in private practice in Jackson.
