Arizona AG Looking Into 'Possible Violations' Of Arizona Abortion Law

The Arizona Attorney General's Office is asking a federal judge to allow it to pursue an investigation into whether anyone in Arizona is violating state laws dealing with the use of fetal remains.

In papers filed in federal court, the attorney general’s office wants a judge to release videos from Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group, to the state.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, believes a federal injunction will impede his ability to investigate whether state laws are being violated.

The Attorney General's Office would not comment on what it is investigating other than to say it is a "possible violation of Arizona law.''

Court documents obtained by Capitol Media Services confirm there is an active investigation. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick specifically said a subpoena already has been issued by the state.

Exactly who or what Brnovich is investigating remains confidential.
