Rare win for Daleiden in 9th Circuit

Three-judge appellate panel finds lower court’s order blocking access to public information about researchers associated with the University of Washington’s Birth Defects Research Laboratory was too broad

Anti-abortion activist David Daleiden has scored a victory in the Ninth Circuit, with judges finding a lower court’s order blocking his access to public information about researchers associated with the University of Washington’s Birth Defects Research Laboratory was too broad.

The proposed class, potentially 600 people, wanted their personal identifying information redacted from all records given to Daleiden. But they failed to show how they were engaged in First Amendment-protected activity or that they are likely face threats and harassment if the information is disclosed, a three-judge panel ruled on Monday.

The temporary injunction will stay in place for no more than 120 days while the trial court gathers more information.
