Abstract Federal court challenge to a Texas rule prohibiting Planned Parenthood affiliates and other entities affiliated with abortion providers from participating in Texas’ Medicaid Women’s Health Program. The case was filed in April 2012. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas held a hearing on the matter and granted a preliminary injunction preventing the law from going into effect. The state immediately appealed. In May 2012, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the state’s motion for a stay pending appeal. In August 2012, the 5th Circuit lifted the temporary injunction and allowed the law to go into effect pending the outcome of the case. In October 2012, the full 5th Circuit refused to rehear the case. Final Outcome: The case was dismissed in November 2012 without prejudice at Plaintiff’s request while the state court case proceeds.
