CHICAGO, IL - APRIL 05: This photo illustration shows a package of Plan B contraceptive on April 5, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. A federal judge in New York City has ordered the Food and Drug Administration to make Plan B contraceptive, also known as the morning after pill, available to younger teens without a prescription within 30 days. The judge's ruling overturns a December 2011 decision by the FDA to restrict access to the contraceptive to any girl under 17 years of age. (Photo illustration by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

The owners of Ralph's Thriftway Pharmacy sued in 2007 to overturn the state emergency contraceptive rule.
