Topeka Planned Parenthood has dropped a lawsuit that it filed over new Kansas regulations for abortion providers shortly before it received a state license to continue performing abortions.
Attorneys for Planned Parenthood filed a one-paragraph notice Tuesday in federal court dropping the legal action.
Still pending is a separate lawsuit over the new regulations involving the state's two other abortion providers. Their case led a federal judge to block enforcement of the rules until a trial is finished.
The regulations were supposed to take effect July 1. They tell providers what equipment and drugs they must stock and set minimum space and temperature requirements for clinic rooms.
Planned Parenthood received a license hours after filing its lawsuit. The other two providers did not obtain licenses.
