READ: Federal Judge Orders Planned Parenthood-Related Video Turned Over To Congress, Warns No "Game of Hide the Ball"

The judge in the Planned Parenthood-related case (National Abortion Federation v. Center For Medical Progress ordered today that CMP should comply with the Congressional subpoena.

However, U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick also warned CMP to turn over identical information to the NAF, and to not play any games: "I will not countenance a game of hide the ball with respect to these documents, video footage and communications, that interferes directly with these proceedings."

Arizona has also subpoenaed CMP for the footage, though it does not appear that any Arizona Planned Parenthood affiliates were involved in fetal tissue donations (or, alleged sales). It is not immediately clear what the status is of Arizona's subpoena, but it does not appear that today's order effects it.
