PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona’s revenge porn law is still the target of a lawsuit after legislators adjourned earlier this month without voting on a bill amending disputed requirements.

The Arizona Capitol Times reports (http://bit.ly/1IwXTZh) Rep. J.D. Mesnard sponsored the revisions in response to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging his original law passed in 2014.

Representatives passed the bill unanimously to the Senate April 2, where it sat for eight hours without a vote.

U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton hit pause on the lawsuit so that issues could be fixed in the legislature. The ACLU is reviewing the status of the lawsuit in light of the legislature’s inability to amend the law before adjourning.

Senate President Andy Biggs said the injunction will likely carry over for another year.
