Att. Gen. Cuccinelli Hires Outside Law Firm



Richmond, VA - Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is hiring an outside law firm to represent the state in a tax lawsuit filed against Virginia by a company in which Cuccinelli has investments.

The office is expected to make an announce Friday after reports detailing Cuccinelli's stock in Star Scientific Inc. 

The company sued Virginia over a disputed $700,000 tax bill in 2011.

Cuccinelli's office is defending the state Department of Taxation, despite the appearance of a conflict of interest. 

The case has sat dormant since August 2011 when the state filed a response to the company's complaint.
