Attorney General Jerry Brown denies request for prison health care money

A court hearing scheduled for Monday looks as if it'll be pretty contentious. A federal judge supervising a case to improve prison medical care had ordered California's attorney general to present a plan for how and when the state would pay $250 million dollars to improve prison medical care. Late today the attorney general filed a brief with the court saying the state's not going to pay the money.
