Several-Hundred Million Dollar Suit Filed Against Anti-Abortion Organizations


The Legal Action for Reproductive Rights filed a several-hundred million dollar federal lawsuit on Thursday against American Coalition of Life Activists and Advocates for Life Ministries. The plaintiffs, filing in Portland, Oregon, allege that the anti-abortion organizations conducted a "campaign of terror and intimidation" that violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

The law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison is handling the plaintiff's case pro bono. Laura J. Allan, an attorney with the Feminist Majority Foundation, serves as "of counsel" in the case.
