TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Ohio's health department is asking the state Supreme Court not to revisit a decision that upheld the shuttering of an abortion clinic.

Justices ruled the department was within its rights in revoking the license of Capital Care of Toledo when it lacked a required patient-transfer agreement with a local hospital.

ProMedica later authorized an agreement, but the department said that doesn't change past noncompliance.
