Nineteen states joined Florida in the suit, and McCollum said he expects more states to join in after new administrations take office in January. McCollum said he's proud that one of his last court appearances for the state involved his historic case. "The whole nostalgia will set in a few weeks, but right now it's a very important day," he said. “It's a great way to go out. If you’re going to go leave an office, it’s a good time to go." It's been a "big finish," he said, noting that in the past few months he's also worked to straighten out claims filed relating to the Deep Horizon oil spill and improperly filed foreclosures. Incoming Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will take over the health care law suit when she takes office in January. McCollum said he's not sure what he's going to do next, but possibilities include returning to Baker and Hostetler, working for a trade assocition, taking a job as general counsel for a corporation or doing work in economic develoment. "I'm going to take my time to make that decision," he said. He's pictured here at a news conference after yesterday's hearing. That's Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott sitting next to him.
