Abortion clinic files second lawsuit
SHARONVILLE, Ohio (WKRC) -- A local clinic that performs abortions filed a second lawsuit asking a judge to order the Ohio Department of Health to approve its license.
Attorneys for the Lebanon Road Surgery Center of Sharonville accused the department of abusing its regulatory authority. The state ordered the clinic to close in January after questioning whether it followed rules to provide backup care for patients.
Clinic operators claimed the department ordered the closure for political reasons.
Lawyers want to consolidate this latest lawsuit with an earlier one scheduled for oral arguments Friday, August 15, 2014.
