Supporters of stricter abortion regulations in Tennessee say an effort to have Amendment 1 overturned subverts the will of the voters.
Amendment 1 passed last week with 53 percent of the voters casting ballots of favor. The amendment changes the Tennessee Constitution to make it easier for lawmakers to restrict abortion.
On Friday, opponents of the amendment filed a lawsuit in federal court claiming the state is not correctly counting the votes. The suit claims the plain language of the state constitution says it can only be amended by a majority of the citizens voting for governor.
The plaintiffs say that means the state should count only the votes of people who also voted in the governor's race. If that is impossible, they want the vote voided.
Gov. Haslam says he's continuing talks with Washington to try to make a decision about Medicaid expansion in Tennessee before the legislative session begins in January.

Earlier Monday, a group of protesters gathered across from the state Capitol to urge the governor to expand Medicaid in Tennessee.
An investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in a Cannon County attorney pleading guilty to theft and agreeing to disbarment for at least five years.
TBI special agents began investigating Dale Peterson in July. Peterson had been an attorney representing the Riverside Center medical facility in Woodbury. The services he provided included filing documents and paying filing fees on behalf of the facility. During the course of the investigation, agents learned that between March 2012 and July 2014, Peterson stopped filing documents with the Cannon County Clerk's office and kept the filing fees for himself.
Last week, Peterson pled guilty to theft over $1,000 through a criminla information plea. He agreed to be disbarred from his law practice for no fewer than 5 years and pay restitution in the amount of $20,551. He was booked at the Cannon County Sheriff's Department after his court appearance.
