Good news! The indictment against Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleidan was dismissed!
The Center for Medical Progress statement along with a copy of the dismissal can be found here.
Kudos to Judge Bull for following the law and dismissing the indictment.
Bad news – the indictment was dismissed for technical reasons, specifically “[t]he indictment’s failure [to address a technical legal point] renders is void. A void indictment confers no jurisdiction to this court.” A very technically sound dismissal, but one that is easily cured.
This leaves the district attorney’s office two options: 1) let the case go 2) cure the technical defect and indict again without the technical error. Make no mistake, this is gut check time for Devon Anderson. Either course will have political impact and sway votes come November leaving the issue simply a matter of what does she believe should happen.
To indict or not to indict that is the question….
