Planned Parenthood of Heartland, Inc. v. Reynolds
The governor filed a motion in a closed case from 2019 asking a trial court to dissolve a permanent block of the state’s six-week ban. Plaintiffs respond that Iowa procedural rules do not allow for such a request and that it is precluded by Iowa Supreme Court precedent. The trial court declined to dissolve the injunction. The Iowa Supreme Court subsequently issued a split decision on the state’s appeal, which leaves in place the lower court decision refusing to reinstate the ban.
