Weekend Hidden News
U.S. District Judge Tanya Marie Walton Pratt ruled on Friday (in time for the news to be hidden over the weekend) to Block portions of the new Indiana abortion law, particularly the part which stopped state funding to planned parenthood. Judge Walton Pratt was nominated by Sen Evan Bayh, and appointed by Obama, apparently to help carry out the leftist agenda of keeping Indiana’s minority populations under control.
The Indiana Atty. General is likely to appeal.
U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker blocked parts of Indiana’s new immigration law, claiming that immigration is a federal issue. Judge Sarah Evans Barker, a 1984 Reagan appointee, after a quarter century, is signaling her readiness to retire, in a manner analogous to that of Senator Richard Lugar.
