The SCOTUS blog on the disposition of Norma McCorvey's Rule 60 Motion:
The Court's refusal to hear a new challenge to Roe v. Wade by a Texas woman, Norma McCorvey ("Jane Roe")was no surprise. McCorvey had asked the Court to grant a Rule 60-b motion to reconsider Roe, on the theory that medical science developments since that ruling in 1973 have undercut the decision. The Court rarely grants such motions. In McCorvey's case, the Fifth Circuit ruled that the attempt to reopen Roe v. Wade was moot, because the Texas anti-abortion laws at issue have been repealed by implication.
