Atlanta lawyers will rep anyone prosecuted for abortions for free

Attorney Drew Findling issued a similar statement following the decision.

“The Findling Law Firm is committed to fighting to restore a woman’s right to choose which has been destroyed by the Supreme Court in the Dobbs decision,” he said. “We will defend anyone prosecuted under Georgia’s anti-abortion ‘heartbeat law’ free of charge and do everything we can to help right this wrong through advocacy across the country.”

Law enforcement agencies across the state are taking a wait-and-see approach in enforcing the Georgia abortion law until it actually goes into effect. House Bill 481, which was signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp in 2019, outlaws most abortions when a doctor can detect fetal cardiac activity, which is typically around six weeks of pregnancy.

The law has been stalled by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, which was awaiting the Supreme Court decision. On Friday afternoon, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr said his office had filed a notice in the 11th Circuit requesting a reversal of the District Court’s decision and allow the law to go into effect.

District 11 Attorney Linda Stanley’s Law License Suspended – by Jan Wondra

On Wednesday, June 1, the Colorado Supreme Court suspended the law license of 11th Judicial District District Attorney (DA) Linda Stanley for failing to complete the required continuing education credits required to maintain her legal status.

Stanley, who is in her first term, is the DA for Chaffee, Fremont, Custer, and Park counties, made an initial statement to KRDO news in Colorado Springs late today, saying that it was “not a big deal” and that law license suspensions happen. Attorneys are required to complete 45 continuing education credits over a three-year period. These days, most attorneys have completed their requirements online and less than one percent of attorneys fail to fulfill this standard requirement.

According to the Wet Mountain Tribune, Stanley was sent three notices by the state of Colorado, reminding her of the requirement, and the actions the state must take if the requirements were not met. The notices apparently went unanswered.
