Overview

What's at stake

  • The states’ authority to shut down unhealthy and dangerous abortion businesses

Summary

ADF represented the Louisiana Health Director in a lawsuit brought by five abortion centers, who challenged his authority under recently enacted legislation to shut down dangerous and unhealthy abortion centers on an emergency basis.  A federal court threw the abortion businesses’ suit out of court, and the decision was upheld on appeal by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans. 

Our role in this case

Alliance Defending Freedom served as special counsel, representing the Director of the Department of Health, Bruce Greenstein.
