Richmond Med. Ctr. for Women v. Herring, No. 03-1821

By FindLaw Staff on June 24, 2009 3:53 PM

In a challenge to a restriction on late-term abortions, summary judgment for Plaintiff is reversed, where 1) the hypothetical situation posited by Plaintiff did not present a sufficiently frequent circumstance to render the statute wholly unconstitutional for all circumstances; and 2) Plaintiff did not present sufficiently concrete circumstances in which the as-applied challenge could be resolved.
