A university that reportedly acts as a repository for human fetal tissue has agreed to provide pro-life activist David Daleiden with 12 years’ worth of records detailing its practices after a six-year-long legal battle.
Per the settlement, the University of Washington will produce full records of its use and distribution of aborted fetuses and their organs from 2010 to the present. In addition, the university will pay Daleiden’s counsel $30,000 in attorney’s fees.
The settlement was secured by the Thomas More Society, a nonprofit law firm representing Daleiden, known for his undercover work with the Center for Medical Progress.
Planned Parenthood and university representatives have also agreed to dismiss a lawsuit they filed in 2016 to prevent the release of the records. Daleiden is dismissing his cross-claim against the university for allegedly violating the Public Records Act.University to release documents on aborted baby experiments | U.S. News
