In the past two weeks we have filed two briefs in the Ninth Circuit on behalf of David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress.
The first brief was in the case Jane Does v. David Daleiden. In that case, CMP filed a public records request regarding the purchase of baby body parts by the University of Washington. Then a group of Planned Parenthood employees, styling themselves “Jane Does,” filed suit to prevent UW from releasing any records. Judge Robart agreed with the Jane Does that their constitutional right to privacy precluded releasing the government records that David requested, and ordered that all “personally identifying information” be scrubbed from the documents.
We appealed to the Ninth Circuit because the Jane Does’ understanding of their right to privacy was amazingly broad and could be used to stymie prolife investigations all across the country.
