Judge Delays Hearing in Abortion Lawsuit in Kansas

KSAL StaffJuly 12, 2013

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.
