Life Legal Defense Foundation
December 6, 2018 (Life Legal Defense Foundation) – Life Legal Defense Foundation has filed a motion to dismiss all racketeering, conspiracy, and fraud claims in Planned Parenthood v. Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Planned Parenthood sued CMP and its board of directors shortly after CMP released a series of videos showing Planned Parenthood officials negotiating the sale of baby parts for profit.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America and nine of its largest affiliates alleged that they had to implement exorbitant security measures following the release of the CMP videos. However, the court has already ruled that Planned Parenthood may only recover damages caused directly by CMP defendants, not those caused by third parties.
In other words, Planned Parenthood has to show that its increased security and other related costs were solely due to David Daleiden, Sandra Merritt, and other investigators infiltrating the abortion giant’s inner workings to glean information about its practices related to the trafficking of baby body parts. Daleiden and Merritt used aliases to attend abortion industry conferences and to meet with Planned Parenthood officials at abortion facilities in Colorado and Texas.
Life Legal has learned that Planned Parenthood never took any steps to verify identification
