PHOENIX (AP) -- A federal judge has overturned a 2012 Arizona anti-abortion law targeting Planned Parenthood.
 
U.S. District Judge Neil Wake says the law's ban on Medicaid funding for non-abortion health care provided by abortion doctors and clinics violates federal Medicaid law.
 
Wake's ruling grants Planned Parenthood Arizona Inc.'s request for a pretrial verdict in its favor.
 
In 2012, Wake had temporarily barred enforcement of the law.
