Conspiracy to violate our 1st and 14th Amendment civil rights.


Did you see the breaking news this past week? CMP and I are suing Planned Parenthood, Kamala Harris, CA AG Becerra, and others in Los Angeles federal court for conspiracy to violate our 1st and 14th Amendment civil rights.

The Attorney General of California has ADMITTED in open court that I have become the first and only journalist to be prosecuted under the California video recording law, solely because the Attorney General finds my message too "shocking" to be permitted. Planned Parenthood and the California AG are illegally colluding to criminally punish politically disfavored speech!

Read the complaint HERE and learn more about it on our website.

The lawsuit begins:
“This complaint seeks justice for a brazen, unprecedented, and ongoing conspiracy to selectively use California’s video recording laws
as a political weapon to silence disfavored speech. David Daleiden became the first journalist ever to be criminally prosecuted under California’s​
recording law, not because of the method of video recording he utilized in his investigation—which is common in investigative journalism in this​
state—but because his investigation revealed and he published “shock[ing]” content that California’s Attorney General and the private party co-conspirators wanted to cover up.
Harmeet K. Dhillon, lead civil counsel on the case, says this about our new effort to hold Planned Parenthood and their political allies like Kamala Harris accountable and to vindicate our constitutional rights:

“Our federal civil rights statutes were enacted in the wake of the darkest periods in our nation’s history. They are well-suited for the current civil rights crisis we face, a time when powerful politicians allow their special interest patrons to custom-order prosecutions that violate fundamental constitutional rights, and do so even with the knowledge that their actions are ultra vires.”

After CMP's undercover videos were released in 2015, two Congressionalinvestigations confirmed the "systemic violations" at Planned Parenthood, a southern California prosecutor shut down two of Planned Parenthood's business partners in a $7.8 million settlement with an admission of guilt, and the U.S. Department of Justice has an ongoing active investigation of Planned Parenthood's baby parts trafficking.

Instead of coming clean and reforming, Planned Parenthood and their allies have tried to bury the evidence with retaliatory lawsuits to attack the First Amendment and silence anyone who challenges them.

CMP's team of legal experts are working hard to make sure our First Amendment rights and those of all citizen journalists are vindicated.
