Remember this thread regarding Planned Parenthood of Iowa, confidentiality and a murder investigation? The county attorney has now dropped the case due to lack of resources. I was looking forward to the ruling on this one.

The lack of recourses argument is obviously a thinly veiled attempt to avoid an unfavorable ruling...look forward to this type of police state malarkey happening again soon

"Right now, he said, there are no new leads in the death of the baby girl. "

Am I the only one who finds this comment to be one of blame against Planned Parenthood? I guess the terrorists have won yet again, (damn those privacy enthusiasts anyhow!).

hf: Don't be so quick to discount the 'lack of resources' explanation. A couple years ago, a friend of mine who lives in a rural Georgia county was accused of molesting his stepdaughter by his about-to-be-divorced wife. Although the charges were dropped months later (the stepdaughter finally broke and ratted out the mother), the investigation ate almost 3/4 of the county DA's annual budget. The primary reason for the extended investigation is he hired a damn fine defense team (a sitting judge from another county and a retired FBI agent doing the private investigation).
