INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Attorneys have been back in court arguing over Planned Parenthood's request for a judge to block Indiana's tough newabortion law that cuts off much of the public funding for the organization because it provides abortions.
Planned Parenthood must show it's likely to eventually prevail in the case before Judge Tanya Walton Pratt will grant an injunction
Indiana's solicitor general Thomas Fisher told Pratt on Monday that the state can appeal a federal rejection of the law, so it has no bearing on whether she should block it.
Planned Parenthood attorney Ken Falk says the federal rejection of the Indiana changes shows that it will prevail.
No ruling is imminent. Pratt gave the state a week to file a new brief and Falk three days to respond after that.
