BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's sole abortion clinic in Fargo has settled a lawsuit it filed over a new law requiring doctors who perform abortions to obtain hospital-admitting privileges.
New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights is helping the Red River Women's Clinic and says in a statement that the case has been settled.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The group filed a lawsuit in state court last year challenging the law. But last month, Sanford Health said physicians at the Red River Women's Clinic have been credentialed at its hospital in Fargo. The action made the lawsuit moot.
A state judge in July granted a preliminary injunction that prevented the law from taking effect.
