A federal judge in California ordered the video journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s practices in the harvesting and sales of aborted baby body parts to pay the abortion giant $13.6 million to cover its legal costs in its case against them.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Orrick III ordered David Daleiden and his associates at Center for Medical Progress (CMP) to pay $13.6 million over the $2 million in damages they were ordered to pay last year for recording the abortion vendor’s officials while they discussed how they harvest the fetal tissue for sale.
Daleiden and his advocates have now appealed the verdict to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
In November 2019, a jury found the pro-life journalists violated the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), causing significant harm to Planned Parenthood with its video series, and awarded the punitive damages to the abortion provider.
Orrick, Daleiden told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight soon afterward, “is actually the founder of a Planned Parenthood of Northern California clinic in San Francisco.”
He added what he and his legal team discovered about the relationship between Orrick and high-level Democrats:
Planned Parenthood, very intentionally and very strategically and with a lot of gamesmanship, filed this case specifically to get it in San Francisco in front of Judge William Orrick, who is an Obama appointee, who was a bundler for the Obama campaign for hundreds of thousands of dollars, is best friends with Tom Steyer.
Daleiden and his attorneys unsuccessfully attempted to get Orrick recused from the case several times.
The judge blocked the jury from viewing all the undercover video he produced during his undercover investigation, Daleiden said.

An Obama appointee. Figures.
Up yours, Orrick, and up yours, O’Vomit!
The world truly is upside down. Those who expose criminal wrongdoing are harshly punished, while those breaking all rules of human decency and basic morality are rewarded.
I would send a note to the judge saying
“Go pound sand”
Time for a Trump pardon
So RICO prosecutions still do happen! Seems odd that no one in the District of Criminals ever gets charged with it! /s
"[WESTCHESTER, N.Y. – Dec. 1, 2020] Project Veritas released (new tapes today) of CNN’s 9 a.m. rundown calls that have been recorded for months, which expose CNN president Jeff Zucker and several other CNN executives expressing their political biases against people and groups that oppose the network’s political agenda.
And the press is okay with this apparently
When moral decay yields moral consequences — the inevitable awaits.
All built on the 17th Amendment...
The uniparty controls the Senate due to the 17th Amendment, thus the judiciary reflects this as well..
Bible verse regarding this situation:
Isaiah 5:20 ¶ Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
The response should simply be NO.
The Bible says, in Isaiah 5:20, Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.
Eventually, they will get theirs. Not as quickly as we would like, but they WILL.
Jusy dissolve and re-form under a new inc.
the “judge” KNOWINGLY is murdering children
from his bench. KNOWINGLY making him a murderous BLACKROBE.
Commie California could not care about murder, HATE CRIME,
or the Constitution, and will NOTHING.
Good summary, sadly.
I don’t know the whole story but go fund me seems appropriate
When Satan wins, America DIES!
Yes, yes they will.
We are heading into not a “Dark Winter” but a “Dark Age”.
