TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a challenge to a since-repealed Arizona abortion law that would have placed restrictions on drug-induced abortions.

U.S. District Judge David C. Bury on Wednesday signed an order accepting an agreement between lawyers for the state and Planned Parenthood Arizona to dismiss the case.

Gov. Doug Ducey last May signed legislation repealing previously enacted legislation to lock in outdated federal guidelines covering the most commonly used abortion drug.

The law barred doctors from prescribing the drug commonly known as RU-486 after seven weeks of pregnancy and required it to be taken only at Food and Drug Administration-approved doses in effect at the beginning of the year.
