Here is a link to the Court’s decision in Azar v. Garza. In this case, the DC Circuit had allowed an undocumented teen who was in custody to obtain an abortion over the government’s objection. Because the teen obtained an abortion, the Supreme Court considered the case moot and, pursuant to its standard practice, vacated the DC Circuit’s decision and remanded the case to the lower court.
The Administration had asked the Court to sanction the teen’s lawyers for “what appear to be material misrepresentations and omissions” that were “designed to thwart” Supreme Court review. Without delving into the factual disputes about the teen’s lawyers’ conduct, the Court did not sanction the teen’s lawyers.
The Court’s decision did not resolve the broader issue of whether undocumented teens in governmental custody have a right to an abortion.
