judge banging gavelCourt cases against citizen reporter David Daleiden have become confusing as he continues to defend himself in federal and state courts.

Daleiden believes that while the lawsuits move forward, a political agenda is at stake with the outcome.

There are two federal lawsuits against Daleiden. There is also a criminal case being heard in state court that is based on his release of a series of undercover videos revealing abortion clinics – including Planned Parenthood – selling body parts and tissue from aborted babies for a profit.

This week, Federal Judge William Orrick held two of Daleiden’s attorneys – Steve Cooley and Brentford Ferreira – in contempt of court.

Thomas More Society Founder Tom Brejcha, founder of Thomas More Society explained Orrick’s motivation behind his action.

“They took the position that David had to publish part of his defense – in that case, some of the undercover videos that the federal judge [included] in the civil case (that is the racketeering case), [and] they'd been suppressed,” Brejcha pointed out. “He was ordered not to divulge them in the civil case, but they did so in the criminal case.”

As a guest on American Family Radio’s (AFR’s) Washington Watch with Tony Perkins, Daleiden stressed that Judge Orrick indicated he was not trying to interfere with the criminal case in state court.

“But he and his cronies are doing exactly that, when they're saying we're not allowed to use the exact same videos publicly in my defense, or otherwise,” the beleaguered pro-life reporter asserted. “We're not allowed to use the exact same videos the attorney general is relying on to prosecute me.”

Judge Orrick has had many strong ties with pro-abortion entities. Brejcha maintained that lawyers representing the two cited attorneys – Cooley and Ferreira – are going to appeal to reverse the contempt order. Daleiden, who heads the Center for Medical Progress, could also be cited.
