(LIFE NEWS) – Undercover investigator David Daleiden has been vindicated in court today against the bogus lawsuit Planned Parenthood filed after his videos exposed the abortion giant for selling aborted baby parts.
Daleiden has maintained from the beginning that he and the Center for Medical Progress followed all applicable laws in the course of its investigative journalism and that the lawsuit was politically motivated retribution as opposed to a suit based on legitimate damages.
In a big victory for the First Amendment freedoms of citizen journalists on Wednesday evening, a federal judge in San Francisco indicated his intent to decisively cut back Planned Parenthood's retaliatory lawsuit against The Center for Medical Progress for the undercover videos documenting Planned Parenthood's sale of aborted baby parts.

In his tentative ruling, which he instructed the parties to treat as if it were substantially final, Judge William Orrick III rejected Planned Parenthood's false and long-running smear that accused CMP citizen journalists, including David Daleiden, of attempting to incite "threats" and "violence" by publishing the undercover videos.
