U.S. appeals court blocks Indiana 'selective' abortion law
Thu, 19 Apr 2018 20:37:43 -0400
U.S. appeals court blocks Indiana 'selective' abortion lawThe 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago said the 2016 ban on "selective" abortions imposed an "undue burden" on the ability to have the procedure. It rejected Indiana's suggestion that women's privacy rights covered only the "binary choice" of whether or not to have a child, not whether to terminate particular pregnancies, including for genetic disabilities. "The Supreme Court has been clear: the State may inform a woman's decision before viability, but it cannot prohibit it," Circuit Judge William Bauer wrote for a 3-0 panel of Republican-appointed judges.

Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal case
Thu, 19 Apr 2018 19:17:22 -0400
Judge rejects Missouri governor's bid to dismiss criminal caseA St. Louis judge on Thursday dealt Missouri Governor Eric Greitens another legal setback in the sex scandal embroiling his office, refusing to dismiss a criminal invasion of privacy charge stemming from an admitted extramarital affair. The decision by Judge Rex Burlison paved the way for the single-count felony case against Greitens, a Republican under mounting pressure from both parties to resign, to proceed to trial even as he comes under scrutiny for unrelated accusations of computer tampering. Greitens' lawyers last week sought to throw out the privacy case on grounds of prosecutor misconduct, saying St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, had tried to conceal video evidence supporting the governor and his assertions that the affair was entirely consensual.
