Wyoming AG Says Abortion Protest Case Pointless

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Attorney General's Office has asked a federal judge to deny an anti-abortion group's request to order the state to allow the group to display its materials near the state Capitol during the legislative session that starts next month.

The AG's Office filed papers in federal court on Thursday saying this week's action by the State Building Commission banning any kind of displays in the walkway between the State Capitol and the Herschler Building means there's no reason to grant the group's request.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal is set to consider the request from WyWatch Family Action at a court hearing on Monday. A lawyer for the group declined comment on Friday.

Wyoming Attorney General Greg Phillips also declined comment.
