Judge Delays Hearing in Abortion Lawsuit in Kansas

KSAL Staff - July 12, 2013 7:35 pm

A Kansas couple was sentenced to three years of probation for laundering millions of dollars in suspected drug money through their small town bank.

A federal judge has postponed a hearing in a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood against parts of a new Kansas abortion law.

Chief Judge Kathryn Vratil’s decision Friday came after attorneys for both sides asked Vratil to revise her schedule for considering the case in U.S. District Court.

Vratil had scheduled a hearing for July 29. Instead, she set a telephone conference call for that date to set a new schedule.

Planned Parenthood is challenging parts of the law dealing with abortion providers’ websites and what they must tell patients before terminating pregnancies.

Attorneys said they needed more time to agree on a summary of the facts in the case.

But she warned the lawyers that she might not be able to reschedule the hearing until December.
