Stuart et al. v. Walker-McGill et al. Memorandum Opinion and Order re Attoney’s Fees and Costs
On September 29, 2011, the Center for Reproductive Rights challenged a newly enacted North Carolina law which prohibits a woman from getting an abortion until four hours after her physician performs an ultrasound, places the ultrasound images in her view, and provides her with a detailed explanation and description of the images, whether or not she wants to see the images or hear any or all of the description.
On January 25, 2016, United States District Judge Catherine C. Eagles issued the following Memorandum Opinion &, Order requiring the state to pay over $1 million in attorney’s fees and costs after the law was permanently struck down as unconstitutional.
