Life Legal Defense Foundation Appear in Federal Court for 'Planned Parenthood v. the Center of Medical Progress' Case

The Life Legal Defense Foundation will appear in federal court on Wednesday, July 6 on behalf of David Daleiden in the case of Planned Parenthood v. the Center of Medical Progress.

Planned Parenthood filed its lawsuit against Daleiden's Center for Medical Progress after Daleiden exposed Planned Parenthood's illegal trade in fetal body parts last year. The court will hear oral arguments on Life Legal's Motion to Dismiss the suit and our "Anti-SLAPP" Motion. The Anti-SLAPP Motion argues that the abortion giant filed the lawsuit only to intimidate and silence Daleiden.

The hearing will be at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District in San Francisco at 2:00 pm on July 6.
