Judge extends abortion law block another week

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ A federal judge has extended until Aug. 8 his order temporarily blocking enactment of a Wisconsin law that requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

U.S. District Judge William Conley's order Wednesday stems from a lawsuit Planned Parenthood and Affiliated Medical Services filed in July.

Conley says in his order there was some confusion about whether the temporary block issued on July 17 would expire on Wednesday, so he was temporarily extending it another week while he finishes his ruling on the injunction.

Conley says he expects to rule by the end of the week on issuing a preliminary injunction blocking the law until trial in November.
