Court denies motion to block Indiana AG from accessing patient records

Indianapolis, IN — A motion from Dr. Caitlin Bernard to block Attorney General Todd Rokita from accessing medical records has been denied by a Marion County judge.

The ruling puts the matter in the jurisdiction of the state Medical Licensing Board.

Rokita wants the board to discipline Dr. Bernard after she provided abortion services to a 10-year-old rape victim from Ohio, alleging she broke the law when she went public with the girl’s age.

However, the judge stated in the order that Rokita violated Indiana’s confidentiality obligations as well.
