State Court Deems Law Wide Attack on Abortion, by Adam Liptak, The New York Times (with hat tip to Howard Bashman, How Appealing Blog!)

In Oklahoma Coalition For Reproductive Justice v. Cline, 2012 OK 102,
292 P.3d 27, all Justices of the Oklahoma Supreme Court concurred in a per curium opinion that this legal issue is controlled by Planned Parenthood v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833 (1992).

The Oklahoma Supreme Court held:

The challenged measure is facially unconstitutional pursuant to Casey, 505 U.S. 833. The mandate of Casey remains binding on this Court until and unless the United States Supreme Court holds to the contrary. The judgment of the trial court holding the enactment unconstitutional is affirmed and the measure is stricken in its entirety.
