Kansas Ordered to Make Quarterly Planned Parenthood Payments

Kansas was ordered to continue making quarterly payments to Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri while it appeals an Aug. 1 ruling that had temporarily restored funding.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten in Kansas City today denied a request by the state to make monthly payments while the appeal is pending.

“The intent of the court’s order was to restore and maintain the prior status quo between the parties, a relationship which was premised on quarterly installment payments of a portion of the subgrant, not a monthly reimbursement schedule,” Marten said.

Marten on Aug. 1 granted Planned Parenthood’s request for an order blocking a state law that made the Overland Park, Kansas-based organization ineligible for federal money the group said paid for cancer screenings, breast exams, birth control and basic family planning for the poor and the uninsured.

James Armstrong, a lawyer representing Kansas, didn’t immediately return a call to his office after regular business hours.

The case is Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri v. Brownback, 11-cv-2357, U.S. District Court, District of Kansas (Kansas City).
