Attorneys Seek More Time in Kansas Abortion Lawsuit

KSAL StaffJuly 11, 2013

Attorneys for Kansas and Planned Parenthood are asking a judge to postpone a hearing in the organization’s federal lawsuit over parts of a new state abortion law.

They filed a joint request Thursday in U.S. District Court with Chief Judge Kathryn Vratil.

Planned Parenthood is challenging provisions in the law dealing with providers’ websites and what information they must provide to patients before terminating pregnancies.

Vratil had scheduled a hearing in Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit for July 29 in Kansas City, Kan. She also ordered attorneys to begin filing their legal briefs next week, with the last one due July 22.

But the attorneys said they’re trying to agree on a summary of facts in the case to expedite the lawsuit and need more time to finish.
