  • Judge Henry E. Hudson: "What conflict of interest?"


Gawker.com is reporting that Henry E. Hudson—the federal judge who ruled the insurance mandate provision of the health care overhaul unconstitutional yesterday in Virginia—owns up to a $50,000 stake in Campaign Solutions, Inc., a consulting firm that worked against the bill.

In July, The Huffington Post reported that Campaign Solutions had also done work for Ken Cuccinelli, the very attorney general who brought the case to court.
