The Idaho attorney general’s office also told a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California, on Friday that the attorney who intervened on her behalf didn’t have legal standing.
Jennie Linn McCormack and Richard Hearn sued the state after she was charged with felony illegal abortion. U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill in March 2013 ruled in their favor.
Hearn on Friday argued McCormack could be charged again, and that he has legal standing.
It’s unclear when the panel will make a ruling.
