The U.S. Supreme Court Monday left lower court victories intact for Planned Parenthood in a legal battle with states over access by Medicaid patients to the group's services.

 

The dispute did not involve abortion, but the action by the justices keeps a hot button political issue off the docket. Three of the court's conservatives said the court should have agreed to take the case.

 

After an anti-abortion group released videos in 2015 that purported to show officials from Planned Parenthood talking about selling fetal tissue, several states immediately terminated Medicaid provider agreements with the group's affiliates. The videos were largely discredited, but the states involved said they found the allegations troubling.
