Pro-Life Lawsuit against the state of Illinois Dismissed
UPDATE: Pro-Life Lawsuit against the State of Illinois Dismissal Appealed
June 23, 2017
Judge dismisses 14 “invasion-of-privacy charges” against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt
Defense lawyers will now go after the sole remaining charge– for “criminal conspiracy” to invade “privacy”–brought against the pair, based on the same video recordings. Those videos, claims pro-abortion California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (who brought the charges in March) were taken of 14 people without permission between October 2013 and July 2015 in Los Angeles, San Francisco and the county of El Dorado.
“This is a huge victory to have 14 criminal counts dismissed,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “We will now turn our attention to dismissing the final count. Sandra Merritt did nothing wrong. The complaint by the California Attorney General is unprecedented and frankly will threaten every journalist who provides valuable information to the public. This final count will also fall.”
