U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp issued a preliminary injunction today barring district attorneys in Davidson and Sullivan counties from enforcing a new abortion clinic law, the Tennessean reports. The decision comes after the prosecutors were unwilling to submit a written statement that they would not enforce the law. Sharp had lifted a temporary restraining order on Monday but made its fate contingent on the DAs pledge not to prosecute.
