The doctors applied for and were granted admitting privileges at University General Hospital in Dallas after passage of HB 2.
Later Thursday, District Judge Sheryl McFarlin temporarily reinstated the doctors’ privileges until an April 30 hearing to determine if a temporary injunction is necessary.
The doctors say their privileges were terminated after the hospital was targeted by protesters in the days after the 5th Circuit ruling.
Neither doctor performs abortions at the hospital.
“On March 31, 2014, UGHD’s new chief executive officer, Chuck Schuetz, revoked plaintiffs’ privileges and, on information and belief, assured the protesters that UGHD would be ‘pro-life’ and would not associate with those who provide abortions,” the 29-page complaint states.
