Judge sets conference date for abortion clinic lawsuit

JACKSON — A federal judge has set an Aug. 15 status conference in a lawsuit in which Mississippi’s only abortion clinic is fighting to remain open.
The suit, filed last summer, challenges a 2012 state law that requires each OB-GYN who does abortions at the clinic to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
U.S. District Judge Daniel P. Jordan III ruled in April that the state can’t close Jackson Women’s Health Organization while the clinic still has a federal lawsuit pending.
The status conference in August will be done by telephone with U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Ball.
