David Daleiden, the founder of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a pro-life organization, published undercover videos in 2015 of Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the sale of baby parts that sparked congressional hearings and a Department of Justice investigation into the abortion provider.

In retaliation, Planned Parenthood filed a lawsuit accusing David Daleiden, CMP, and its members with illegal taping, fraud, and racketeering. Judge William Orrick, III, who has ties to Planned Parenthood, refused to disqualify himself and refused to allow a First-Amendment free speech defense. A jury awarded Planned Parenthood over $2-million that includes punitive and compensatory damages as well as attorneys’ fees. Pro-life defense lawyers will appeal, telling reporters outside the courtroom the “process was unfair.” Daleiden and Merritt are also facing 14 felony counts of illegal taping under California‚Äôs anti-eavesdropping law. -GEG

SAN FRANCISCO, California, November 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ‚ÄĒ David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress undercover investigators have been found guilty of multiple crimes and must pay millions in damages to Planned Parenthood for the work they did in exposing organ harvesting on aborted¬†babies.

The jury of nine men and one woman released its verdict Friday afternoon after deliberating less than two days, even though the landmark civil trial took six weeks.

The total amount awarded to Planned Parenthood is over $2 million, according to the Thomas More Society, which includes punitive and compensatory damages as well as attorneys’ fees. Local San Francisco reporter Helen Chistophi tweeted from the courthouse that the punitive damages totaled $870,000.

The results should be considered jury tampering on the part of the biased judge.
