Law360, New York (July 2, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT) -- A federal judge on Sunday temporarily blocked a Mississippi law requiring doctors performing abortions to be board-certified OB-GYNs and have admitting privileges at a local hospital, which an abortion clinic claims is unconstitutional and would effectively ban abortion in the state.
U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III postponed the implementation of H.B. 1390 — scheduled to go into effect Sunday — until at least July 11, when he will hold a hearing on an injunction bid lodged by the Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
