Missouri Ordered to Pay Planned Parenthood’s Legal Fees

The State of Missouri is being ordered to pay Planned Parenthood $140,000 in legal fees.

According to a report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch an Administration Hearing Commissioner granted request by Planned Parenthood on Friday for legal fees as well as $6,600 spent on an expert witness.

A 4-day trial in October 2019 highlighted the state’s efforts to close the facility by denying a license to operate based on allegations of botched abortions.

Planned Parenthood said the state picked a handful of difficult cases out of thousands of otherwise successful abortions.
