US District Judge William Orrick found David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress in contempt this week for the release of video footage exposing the abortion industry’s brutal disregard for life.
Orrick awarded the National Abortion Federation (NAF) approximately $137,000 for attorney fees, security costs, and staff time the abortion trade group claims has gone toward searching the Internet for links to Daleiden’s videos. Daleiden must also turn over videos and any materials relating to the court order.
Monday’s contempt ruling against Daleiden is combined with Orrick’s decision last week that his lawyers, former Los Angeles prosecutor Steve Cooley and Brent Ferreira, had violated Orrick’s injunction against release of footage from the NAF’s 2014 and 2015 conferences.
Cooley and Ferreira told Associated Press they plan to appeal the ruling.
