Federal Judge in Wisconsin TRAP Trial Tells Plaintiff To Make Further Efforts To Seek Admitting Privileges
ABC News: Judge: Abortion Doctor Must Research Privileges, by Todd Richmond:
A federal judge told a Milwaukee abortion doctor Thursday to renew his efforts to obtain hospital admitting privileges, hinting that it could resolve a lawsuit alleging a Wisconsin law requiring such privileges is unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge William Conley said he was "bewildered" that Affiliated Medical Services abortion provider Dr. Dennis Christensen and his attorneys haven't received definitive responses from any Milwaukee hospitals. He told them to demand better answers from two facilities where Christensen is seeking admitting privileges. . . .
