Response to Federal District Court Order re. State Abortion Law HB 1456

BISMARCK, ND – "Although the court’s order today is not wholly unexpected, a decision on whether to appeal the decision requires a careful analysis of the order, case law, and the facts presented to the court. I will be meeting with the appropriate state officials about the case before making such a decision. In making the decision, I will take into account the Attorney General’s duty to defend the constitutionality of any enactment of the Legislative Assembly,” said Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem.

A notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days.
