Supreme Court temporarily halts Louisiana abortion law – POLITICO

The Supreme Court put on hold Friday night a Louisiana law that would have shut down any abortion provider in the state that does not have admitting privileges at a hospital less than 30 miles away.

Abortion providers, represented by the Center for Reproductive Rights, had petitioned the court for an emergency stay, saying the law, due to take effect Monday, would leave just one qualified abortion provider to practice in the state. The state contended there was no need for an emergency stay since the law would be implemented over time and not shut down facilities overnight.

‘Got away with one’: Judge dismisses DUI charges for Greensburg woman’s driveway crash | TribLIVE

BY RICH CHOLODOFSKY

A Westmoreland County judge on Thursday dismissed drunken driving charges against a Greensburg woman who was arrested in her own driveway following a collision with a neighbor’s car.

Common Pleas Judge Christopher Feliciani ruled in favor of Mary Britz, 58, who Greensburg police charged after she crashed into a car in June as she attempted to back out of her Painter Avenue driveway. Her vehicle never reached the street.

Defense attorney Patricia Elliott-Rentler argued that DUI charges can only be filed when a motorist operates a vehicle on public roadways.
