Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit against FPIW may have just entered a new frontier.
In a letter sent on Election Day, House Select Investigative Panel Chairwoman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked Judge James L. Robart to clarify why the records, which Congress requested after the abortion industry sued FPIW and David Daleiden to keep them sealed, have not yet been released under the subpoena.

To date, the University of Washington has declined to produce the records for Congress, despite this legally-binding subpoena. Judge Robart’s temporary restraining order (TRO), they claim, prevents them from doing so.
If Judge Robart is forced to amend his TRO to clarify that the records in question may not be withheld from Congress, the records, by law, must be released to Congress by the University of Washington.
This is a step in the right direction for holding Planned Parenthood — and now the University of Washington — accountable to the public. We’ll keep you up-to-date as the case progresses.
