Case Summary

On September 28, 2015, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah (PPAU), represented by private counsel, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. Court for the District of Utah. The plaintiff sued the Utah Department of Health under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for violations of their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights. The plaintiffs asked the court for declaratory and injunctive relief, asking the court to enjoin the defendants from preventing PPAU's access to federal funds it is otherwise qualified to receive.

On September 28, 2015, Planned Parenthood Association of Utah (PPAU), represented by private counsel, filed this lawsuit in the U.S. Court for the District of Utah. The plaintiff sued the Utah Department of Health under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 for violations of their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights. The plaintiffs asked the court for declaratory and injunctive relief, asking the court to enjoin the defendants from preventing PPAU's access to federal funds it is otherwise qualified to receive.

The plaintiffs claimed that on August 14, 2015, the Governor of Utah directed state agencies to "cease acting as an intermediary for federal grant money going to PPAU for non-abortion related services." The Governors directive was a response to a misleading video created by antichoice activists misrepresenting Planned Parenthood and falsely accusing the organization of "selling fetal body parts." The Utah Department of Health followed the Governor's directive, and planned to interfere with Planned Parenthood's access to federal funding for non-abortion services. The plaintiffs argued that the state's actions would cause irreparable harm to Planned Parenthood and its patients.

On September 29, 2015, Judge Clark Waddoups issued a temporary restraining order enjoining the defendants from denying funding to PPAU until October 15, 2016. On October 15, 2015, Judge Waddoups held a hearing on the motion for a preliminary injunction. On December 22, 2015 he issued an order denying the preliminary injunction and vacating the temporary restraining order. On December 27, 2015, PPAU filed an interlocutory appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit on the preliminary injunction decision. The case was stayed at the district court level while the Tenth Circuit decided on the appeal.

On July 12 2016, the Tenth Circuit reversed the lower courts decision and imposed a preliminary injunction enjoining the state from defunding PPAU. On September 7, 2016, Judge Dee Benson for the district court issued a preliminary injunction order in line with the Court of Appeals ruling.

Subsequent to Tenth Circuit's July 12, 2016 order, a poll was called, sua sponte, to consider en banc rehearing. Upon that consideration, a majority of the active available judges of the court voted to deny. Judge Briscoe and Bacharach wrote separate concurring opinions as to the denial of en banc rehearing. Judge Gorsuch wrote a separate dissent, that Judges Tymkovich, Hartz and Holmes joined.

On April 28, 2017, the parties submitted a stipulation proposing a permanent injunction. The proposed permanent injunction provided that Utah would not deny funding to the Plaintiff on impermissible constitutional grounds, including the

Plaintiff’s provision of or advocacy for legal abortion; or the Plaintiff’s association or

affiliation with the national Planned Parenthood organization or its affiliates, or other

organizations with which provide for the advocacy of legal abortion.

The proposed injunction would not require the defendants to continue contracts, renew contracts, or issue new contracts to the Plaintiff. However, if the defendants

defunded, declined to renew, or did not issue a contract to the Plaintiff, they were required to state in writing a legitimate basis for doing so and provide that writing to the Plaintiff within thirty (30) days of the time their decision takes effect. Legitimate bases could not include unproven allegations against the national Planned Parenthood organization or its affiliates or the Plaintiff’s provision of or advocacy for legal abortion.

On May 5, 2017, the Court adopted the parties' stipulated permanent injunction.

On May 9, the parties stipulated to dismiss the case, with prejudice, in light of the permanent injunction. The Court did so on May 10.

The case is now closed, and the permanent injunction is still in place.
