The Latest: Judge Keeps Planned Parenthood Names Sealed

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A judge says the names of 14 Planned Parenthood workers and others will remain sealed during the prosecution of two anti-abortion activists charged with secretly recording them. The ruling came Monday in San Francisco despite the publication of the names on an anti-abortion website over the weekend. Judge Christopher Hite said he would punish anyone discovered to have provided the names, which have been ordered to be kept confidential since charges were filed in 2017 against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress. Prosecutors and Planned Parenthood lawyers say the 14 people fear for their safety and some have received threats. Lawyers for Daleiden and Merritt want the names made public. They told the judge they didn’t give them to the website and don’t know who did. The judge says he will rule later on whether to bar the public from viewing the videos after the case concludes.
