Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Affirms NAF’s Permanent Injunction Against CMP
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 19, 2022
Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California’s decision to grant NAF a permanent injunction barring David Daleiden, Biomax Procurement Services LLC, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), and their agents and co-conspirators from releasing recordings and materials they illegally obtained at NAF’s educational meetings.
“After seven years, this lawsuit is finally over and we have a permanent injunction to protect our members,” said Melissa Fowler, NAF’s Chief Program Officer. “Without a permanent injunction, there is no question that David Daleiden would continue releasing footage from our meetings, which would result in cycles of harassment and violence against NAF, our members, and other abortion providers as we have seen repeatedly and consistently happen with each video release since 2015.”
“We are delighted with today’s victory,” said Derek Foran, litigation partner with Morrison & Foerster. “Morrison & Foerster is proud to stand with NAF and its members in the fight against anti-abortion extremists.”
