Ind. Courts - More on "IU goes to court to oppose new fetal tissue law"

Updating this ILB post from May 23rd, and this post from May 24th ("IU's motion to intervene has been denied"), IU yesterday:

As expected, Indiana University filed its own, separate lawsuit Wednesday challenging Indiana’s new abortion law that will take effect July 1.

The complaint was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana a day after that court denied IU’s request to join a lawsuit brought in April by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. and the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana in relation to House Enrolled Act 1337. The court denied IU’s request because its reasons for filling a lawsuit are different from those of Planned Parenthood and the Civil Liberties Union.

IU spokesman Mark Land said the details of the lawsuit IU filed Wednesday are essentially the same as the previous complaint.

Those quotes are from the start of a story today in the $$ Bloomington Herald-Times, reported by Michael Reschke.
