U.S. Judge William Orrick III of San Francisco; one of the Good Guys


The state of California presented William Horsley Orrick III with a law license in 1973 after she graduated from Boston College School of Law.


In one matter, Judge Orrick stated that he was going to hold attorneys Steve Cooley and Brentford Ferreira in contempt of court for posting links to undercover videos recorded by an anti-abortion group. (Debra Cassens Weiss)


Cooley and Ferreira found it cute to post links on their website to videos recorded by the right-wing loony Center for Medical Progress during meetings of the National Abortion Federation.


Judge Orrick stated that was “no possible excuse” for posting the lines. Orrick went on to state that Cooley and Ferreira “do not get ot decide whether they can violate the preliminary injunction.”


Judge Orrick had previously banned the release of the secretly recorded videos in a civil suit by the National Abortion Federation (NAF). Orrick said officials with the Center for Medical Progress violated confidentially agreements they signed to gain access to the NAF meetings.


Additionally, Orrick previously ruled that the loons at the Center for Medical Progress used false identification and set up a phony corporation to get into the NAF meetings.  


Kudos to Judge Orrick for having the courage and fortitude to find these two contemptuous attorneys in contempt of court for knowingly and intentionally violating a court-order preliminary injunction.


As we speak (ca. September 2017), Judge Orrick continues to sit as a U.S. District Court Judge for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.
