US Supreme Court Case On Texas Abortion Law Could End Up In Tie
The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear its first abortion case since 2007 and first major case since Justice Antonin Scalia's death.By Melissa Prax | March 2, 2016
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a Texas abortion case Wednesday — the first abortion case the court has heard since 2007.
With the absence of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February, the court could rule either way, or even end up in a 4-4 split.
The case surrounds a 2013 Texas law, which initially closed many of Texas' abortion clinics. If upheld, about half of Texas' remaining abortion clinics would be closed.
