Louisiana's Attorney General joined dozens of others in a lawsuit against the federal government over health care reform.

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell is the only democrat in the group. The paperwork was filed Tuesday, in Florida.

The group calls the health care bill unconstitutional, saying the federal government can't require people to buy insurance.

Caldwell said Governor Jindal asked him to consider the court challenge.
