Alaska judge wants abortion law issues heard
Alaska judge rules that issues in abortion notification law should be heard at February trial
By The Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) ' A judge has decided that opponents of an Alaska law requiring parents be notified when their daughters want abortions will get their day in court and be fully heard.

Anchorage Superior Court Judge John Suddock on Friday rejected the state's attempt to have certain issues tossed from a lawsuit to be heard Feb. 13.

At a hearing last month, lawyers for the state sought to streamline the case brought by Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and two doctors. Planned Parenthood responded with objections of its own.

But Suddock found that Alaska's judicial system is imbued with the principle that each party is entitled to its day in court and the opportunity to present facts it believes are significant.
