The case against a Wichita pastor accused of stalking the woman who reopened a shuttered abortion clinic remains in limbo with no court proceedings now in sight.

Julie Burkhart, executive director of Trust Women, has a temporary stalking order against Mark Holick and is seeking to make it permanent. Holick's attorney has asked the court to dismiss the case on First Amendment grounds.

A hearing proposed for Tuesday before Sedgwick County Judge James Beasley is now off and no new hearing date has been set.

Holick is accused of picketing Burkhart's home and handing out "wanted-style" fliers listing Burkhart's address. He also allegedly used a bullhorn and pointed a sign at her house that read, "Where's your church?"

Abortion provider George Tiller was killed in 2009 while at church.
