The judge overseeing the lawsuits filed against the man responsible for exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts has been heavily criticized for his connections to Planned Parenthood. Now, the judge, who tried to censor further videos exposing the abortion industry, may be forced to step down as a result.
Last December 2017, the legal team for undercover citizen journalist David Daleiden, who exposed the abortion industry’s role in the trafficking of aborted baby body parts, filed a petition for an “extraordinary writ of mandamus” in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. The petition asked that the appellate court order that William Orrick, a San Francisco federal judge, step down from presiding over two lawsuits, owing to an apparent conflict of interest and other facts creating the appearance of bias.
On Wednesday, February 28th, a three-judge “motions panel” ruled that Daleiden’s “petition for writ of mandamus raises issues that warrant an answer.”
The panel ordered that the abortion groups suing Daleiden in Judge Orrick’s courtroom, namely, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, its many California-based affiliates as well as others, and the National Abortion Federation, file answers to the mandamus petition within 14 days.
