Choice, Inc. of Texas v. Greenstein

Federal court challenge to Louisiana law that expands the state’s authority to suspend or revoke the licenses of outpatient abortion facilities, thus restricting access to care for Louisiana women. In February 2011, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana dismissed Plaintiff's case as not ripe. Final Outcome: In August 2012, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the district court decision. (See the law here. See the complaint here. See the district court opinion here.
