Case Summary

This case is about Idaho’s No Public Funds for Abortion Act (“NPFAA”), which criminalized the use of public funds to “promote abortion” or “counsel in favor of abortion.” On August 8, 2023, two unions – the Idaho Federation of Teachers and the University of Idaho Teachers Federation, Local 3215 of the American Federation of Teachers – and six university professors filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Idaho. Plaintiffs, represented by the ACLU, the ACLU of Idaho, and private counsel,…

This case is about Idaho’s No Public Funds for Abortion Act (“NPFAA”), which criminalized the use of public funds to “promote abortion” or “counsel in favor of abortion.” On August 8, 2023, two unions – the Idaho Federation of Teachers and the University of Idaho Teachers Federation, Local 3215 of the American Federation of Teachers – and six university professors filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court of Idaho. Plaintiffs, represented by the ACLU, the ACLU of Idaho, and private counsel, sued the State of Idaho. The case was assigned to Judge David C. Nye.  

Plaintiffs alleged that by restricting faculty’s academic speech at Idaho public universities the NPFAA violated the First Amendment. They also alleged that the statute was unconstitutionally vague under the Fourteenth Amendment, as the line between permissible speech and speech that “promotes” or “counsels in favor of” abortion is unclear. Plaintiffs sought preliminary and permanent injunctive relief that would restrain Defendants from enforcing the NPFAA, as well as a declaration that the NPFAA is unconstitutional under the First and Fourteenth Amendments and reasonable attorneys fees. 

After four unopposed motions for extension, the court granted the most recent motion on October 12, 2023, rendering the Defendants answer due on October 26, 2023.
