NAACP v. Horne


Issue: Whether Arizona’s prohibition of abortions based on race or gender violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.

Current Status

District Court Judge David Campbell dismissed the lawsuit in October 2013 for lack of standing. That decision was then appealed by the ACLU to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and on December 15, 2015, a 3-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit agreed with the lower court and dismissed the case for lack of standing. It is unknown whether the ACLU will appeal this case to the U.S. Supreme Court.
