Democrats on Judiciary Committee pass impeachment articles
WASHINGTON (December 13, 2019) — Impeachment charges against President Donald Trump went to the full House on Friday, following approval by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee.
A non-profit litigation organization dedicated to advancing the sanctity of life has hope that reason will prevail its appeal of a case involving undercover videos and Planned Parenthood.
Liberty Counsel will appeal the verdict in the multimillion-dollar civil lawsuit against Sandra Merritt for her part in an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood's trafficking of human baby body parts.
From the beginning, attorney Mat Staver says the court severely restricted the evidence. Then at the end, it instructed the jury on how they should rule on critical issues. The jury went on to decide in favor of the abortion giant on each count, including RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) and awarded more than $2 million in damages.
"We definitely have hope," says Staver about the appeal. "It's not just one error, but many errors, and they're very significant and very substantive, and they go to the heart of being able to have a fair trial and to have proper arguments and evidence, which the judge completely excluded."
San Francisco's U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick III, the founder of the Good Samaritan Family Resource Center that houses the Planned Parenthood of Northern California facility in its complex, heard the case, and Staver believes Orrick's errors stem from his bias toward Planned Parenthood.
"We knew this back in 2017," the attorney continues. "That's when there were motions to recuse him because of his association, and obviously that played out visibly throughout the trial and in the jury instructions."
The appeal will carry over well into next year.
