Judge finds Daleiden attorneys in contempt of court
U.S. District Judge William Orrick found Steve Cooley and Brent Ferreira (David Daleiden’s two criminal defense attorneys) in violation of his federal court order Tuesday that banned the release of the CMP videos from the National Abortion Federation (NAF) conferences in 2014 and 2015.
Orrick is expected to order Daleiden’s attorneys to pay financial damages to the NAF shortly, according to Alexandra Snyder, executive director for Life Legal Defense Foundation (LLDF), which is coordinating the various attorneys representing Daleiden.
