Mo. AG files motion in health care lawsuit

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is trying to block the state from becoming involved in a lawsuit over the federal health care overhaul.

Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder filed a lawsuit last week in federal court challenging the federal health care law. Kinder, a Republican, sued in his personal and official capacities and is raising private funds to pay for the lawsuit.

The attorney general contends Kinder should not be allowed to sue in his official capacity and wants that part of the lawsuit dismissed. Koster left the Republican Party and became a Democrat in 2007.

A Kinder spokesman said Monday the lieutenant governor has a statutory duty to advocate for Missouri seniors. The lawsuit contends part of the federal health care overhaul will harm the state's seniors.
