Federal Judge Who Banned Planned Parenthood Videos Is Obama Appointee And Donor

A California Federal judge who raised $230,000 for President Obama’s presidential campaign approved an injunction Friday afternoon against the Center For Medical Progress, banning the pro-life group from releasing any more Planned Parenthood sting videos.

The National Abortion Federation filed a restraining order against the CMP early Friday morning, and only a few hours later Judge William Orrick, III approved the request to temporarily ban CMP from releasing any more videos.

Orrick was not only an Obama appointee in 2012 but also a prominent campaign bundler, the Federalist first reported. According to Public Citizen, Judge Orrick raised $200,000 for Obama in 2008 as well as over $30,000 for committees supporting Obama.
