The abortion large sued Daleiden in courtroom, alleging that he and different CMP investigators engaged in racketeering, conspiracy and invasion of privateness and opened it up to violence. Planned Parenthood claims it had to spend hundreds of thousands of to enhance safety on account of the movies.

“With regard to the RICO claim, predicate acts – the production of fake IDs – we just have a hard time understanding what possible facts they could hope to elicit to show a direct connection between the production of fake IDs and any damages to [a Planned Parenthood affiliate] who had no infiltration,” she instructed Orrick.
It just isn’t clear when Orrick will rule on the case.
