Federal Court Judge Nanette Laughrey's has blocked the Missouri Department of Health from revoking the abortion facility license of Planned Parenthood in Columbia, Missouri, even though it fails to qualify for licensing.
Judge Laughrey's ruling circumvents Missouri law by allowing Planned Parenthood to maintain an abortion facility license even though it cannot comply with Missouri's law that requires abortion providers to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of abortion facilities.
On March 10, 2016, Judge Laughrey's husband, Chris Kelly, a former Democratic State Representative who is currently working as a lobbyist, was photographed entering the Planned Parenthood facility in Columbia.
Because of Kelly's apparent relationship with the same Planned Parenthood office that Laughrey is protecting from license revocation, there has developed the appearance of impropriety that calls into question Laughrey's ability to rule without bias or undue influence.
Therefore, we the undersigned, call on Judge Nanette Laughrey to recuse from Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri v. Lyskowski, case number 2:15-cv-04273-NKL.
Judge Laughrey, Please recuse from the Planned Parenthood case today!
This judge is compromised on this issue and thus in a position to be unable to render an unbiased decision.
Conflict of interest. Please recuse Judge Laughrey.
Conflict of interest--Judge should get off the case.
Oh the web they weave.
It's rather obvious that this man is connected to Planned Parenthood and should be dismissed from this case.
Ardith H Allison,
Whoever deals with p p is complicit in their constant lies.
Mary Ann Behm,
Our State agencies are suppose to protect the public. Instead, as in this instance, they are often corrupted by politicians and corrupt judges. It is time for this to stop. There should be sever punishment for this judge who has an obvious conflict of interest. It is this type of corruption which is causing much of the populous to loose faith in our system of government.
scumbags like this are never punished
This evil must be stopped.
She should be disbarred!
Another case of money being more important then human life.
THIS JUDGE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM THE BENCH FOR COLLUSION !!!
Jeremiah 1:5The Message (MSG) 5 “Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations— that’s what I had in mind for you.” (God knew those babies before they were born).
Corrupt judges should not only recuse themselves, they should be prosecuted.
The Judge should recuse herself under the circumstance that her husband has business with Planned Parenthood.
Only thing that could have made it worse was for Obama the king of baby killers to b there!!!
Such a conflict of interest requires recusal.
Ababy is groeing and is alive..
abortion is murder
Life begans at conception
A fetus I a developing human being! Whether you call it a baby or fetus its still a human being. May God have mercy on your soul, even though you show no mercy to the unborn.
corruption seems to have no conscience.
This is some of the political corruption that the people are angry over.
Judges are to be impartial in their beliefs and court opinions. Your husband's apparent involvement with Planned Parenthood shows a conflict of interest. For the sake of justice, please recuse yourself from this case.
Corruption - follow the money
Conflict of interest. The Judge should know it is a conflict. No excuse for this kind of execution of duties and a conflict to her oath of office.
Please maintain the rule of law
The law to have the license revoked for PP needs to be enforced!!!
How are you able to fulfill your duty and obligation as a judge in this case without undue bias and undue influence?
Kevin R. Funk,
This is a clear cut case.
Laughter is a scum bag liberal hack.
Frank Gonzales Jr.,
Richard G Dow Sr,
It is evident that PP and its supporters will do anything to continue their evil and deceptive practices, destroying innocent babies and wounding mothers and families, all for unholy profit.
Denny & Darlene Bissell,
The Judge should be prosecuted but of course won't be. What do the people need to do to get these corrupt judges out of office?
Recuse Judge Laughrey due to conflict of interest
A.P. Besser, Jr.,
Keep up your fine work!
Please do the right thing when it comes to the protection of babies life!
Judge Laughrey- Recuse yourself NOW!
If this isn't a valid reason for Judge Laughrey to recuse herself from this case I don't know what would be.
Shut them down!
The law to recuse oneself when conflict of interests is apparent must apply to all, especially the judiciary.
Paul J Rinaldi,
Do you have the integrity and honesty to do what you know is right, Judge.
David & Joanna Koob,
It is hard to believe that the judge can offer a fair and balanced opinion from the bench when her husband is so closely associated with Planned Parenthood!
Sounds like something the sleazy Democrats would do!! Talk about conflict of interest!!
What possible excuse is there for this facility to have a license if it does not meet the legal requirements for that license? Other than corruption, I can see none.
HUMAN LIFE BEGINS AT THE MOMENT OF CONCEPTION.
It is unlawful for a judge to rule on a case when a spouse appears to have connections with the the
Does anyone smell the rotten eggs of the appearance of corruption and conflict of interest?
Eugene & Karen Brock,
You must recuse yourself or risk loss of any shred of judicial impartiality. Whiteout that, you are disqualified to be on the bench and should resign.
Please do the right thing
Paul E. Avizinis,
Judge Laughrey needs to excuse herself from the Planned Parenthood case due to conflict of interest,
Judge Laughfrey, you're to live by laws also. Time to recuse yourself.
Life is precious God have mercy on all involved in the mass murder of the most venerable children of God
This is a conflict of interest! What ever happened to doing what is right. Shut down Planned Parenthood!
The judge must recuse from this case.
If the issue were anything else the recusal would justly take place. Planned Parenthood should be no exception.
Rev D. Spitz,
Just not acceptable
There is no question that ahe should recuse herself. It is definitely a conflict of interest and more!
No more special interest subversion of MO abortion and ambulatory surgical center laws put in place to protect women in crisis pregnancy from exploitation.
Judge Laughrey, You cannot serve two Masters. Do the right and honorable thing - recuse yourself.
Government sanctioned murder and the judge is guilty after the fact !! I wonder if she has children and grandchildren ???
No Judge should be that close, to this issue !
This judge clearly has a conflict of interest in this instance and should be recused.
As a retired attorney, failure to recuse under these circumstances clearly indicates a lack of fitness for prudent judgment, no? What have you come to? Can't you see how this ciolates the Judicial Canons on even the appearance of impropriety?
This is a conflict of interest in a sensitive and divisive area for Missourians.
This is a severe breech of Justice, She should have excused herself immediately.
Robert Strickland Jr,
Ultimate Hypocritical display of someone, who is in a Judicial position. Resign or recuse
We the people are entitled to a judiciary that holds itself to the highest ethical standards, renders fair and impartial decisions based on the law as it is written, and stays within the original framework of the Constitution.
If this judge ever comes up for a vote about retaining her in office, I emphatically encourage you to vote NO.
God help us one and all, our nation is nearing the point of no return.
In order for justice to prevail, this judge is obliged to recuse herself from this case. Blatantly obvious conflict of interest!
A judge is supposed to be impartial and objective. Why do we have to remind her of what is proper in this case? She should be impeached!
Corrupt judges should be impeached, and disbarred.
Typical radical leftists protecting the pro murder industry. The judge needs to recuse herself. Pretty obvious. Do these people have a conscience? How can anyone support murder?
As a retired lawyer, I have an acute sense of smell when it comes to corruption. This Laughrey matter stinks like hell.
What a shame. People will do anything to get and keep power and money. There will be a Judgement Day. And you won't be the judge.
This is Huge Conflict O Interest
Judge, No surprise that you aligned your ruling with your PAID lobbyist spouse. Just another arm of the Clinton machine. Shame on you!
Dennis J Baca,
Conflict of interest!!!
Isn't that against the law?
This appears to be a direct conflict of interest. Any HONORABLE person would Recluse themselves from this case, rather then give the appearance of impropriety!
A judge's job is to be impartial, it does not appear you are in this case. If you do not recuse yourself you are unworthy to be a judge.
You have lost all pretense of judicial fairness. Do the honorable thing and recuse yourself.
Dear Lord - Please Help Us!
Steve and Robyn Schmalz,
An upright judge would have already recused herself without the petitions and public shaming. Take the hint, Lady.
Julien Peter Benney,
This is so wrong!
Hannah Linnenbringer, PhD, FCP,
This judge doesn't live buy the principals she purports to hold.
An unbiased judge is essential for justice.
This is reprehensible and so, so what I expect from Planned Parenthood. We need to get all bias out of courtrooms!
This conflict of interest is corruption. Recusal is necessary to protect the public.
Aborticide is genocide.
This is inexcusable behavior by a federal judge....or any judge.
Tom & Beth Davis,
Let real justice prevail. Can't happen with this judge
We need an unbiased judge so Judge Laughrey should recuse herself immediently!
Aren't these PP people glad their mothers weren't pro-abortion?
Please recuse yourself from this case, Judge. Women and children's lives are in danger.
Where are your morals ?
Melba M. Wobbe,
A judge that has connection to a case should always step away, to protect the court system.
Obvious conflict of interest.
This man obviously has a connection with Planned Parenthood, so that disqualifies with any connection to this case. It is conflict of interest.
Thank you for bringing the details of this case to the forefront.
A judge involved in murder. Did she abort any of her children ? I bet she gets free service there. What a piece of crap.
Joseph Le Bard,
A full investigation should be conducted due to the fact a great deal of tax payer money is involved an kick back's are a favorite money grubbing venue for elected offical's. Time to clean house an stop the funneling of tax payer money .
In the end...Christ Jesus through our Father in Heaven will be the final Judge. Life begins at conception and what this Nation is allowing is murder of helpless human beings who cannot defend themselves, this Nation will be judged for allowing this to happen. God help us all and may America bless God as God blesses America!
George & Sue Major,
Recuse from Planned Babykillinghood Case!
So called "pro-choice" advocates strive to put a noble, positive spin on their efforts to hide and misdirect others from seeing the truth. The truth is they want to kill their babies, if they so choose, with impunity.
Abortion facilities such as Planned Parenthood fulfill that choice with the most repulsive, barbaric and grisly procedures imaginable. The fact that they were caught red handed selling those baby's organs and limbs off for profit really threatened their cash flow. That, in turn, could also diminish PP's cash flow to the Democrats. Therefore this threat had to be stamped out.
The thoroughly corrupt "legal" system approach was to attack the Center for Medical Progress for using a fake ID. The butchering of babies and retail sale of their bodies was ignored and covered up. This contemptible travesty of justice screams for rectification.
I do not believe anything the Post prints. As a life long resident of St. Louis, take my word that this rag is nothing but a pack of left wing liars.
Recuse yourself from the Planned Parenthood case!!!! This is unethical!!!!
Robert N. Summers,
As a so-called Judge, it appears that you can try to break laws (Conflict of interest) as if you are not bound to obey ALL LAWS. You must resign or be impeached for your violation of law.No wonder our citizens are livid that the Judicial Branch of government is so corrupt as to deliberately break the law!
james s edele,
conflict of interest
Put evil judges in place and anything goes. See who controls the courts. they make laws, change laws and enforce their laws for the bottom line and their socialist God hating agenda. $$$
Please recuse,conflict of interest.
Judge is clearly too close to this case, obvious conflict of interest, has a track record of not caring about this in the past, and an appalling lack of urgency to protect women from emergency ambulance rides to the hospital. A medical facility that obtains a license by fraud has no business being open in the first place. What is this mess. Judge Laughrey should recuse and also be under investigation for corruption.
Benjamin C. Hawkins,
How dare Chris Kelly and his Fed. Court Judge wife, get away with their actions, Mr. Kelly as a lobbyist for PP and his wife Judge Laughrey who needs to recuse herself from sitting on the bench in PP of Kansas and Mid-Missouri v. Lyskowski, case number 2:15-cv-04273-NKL.
You must recuse yourself!
It is so clear that this Federal judge , Nanette Laughrey, and her husband Chris Kelly are getting cash from Planned Parenthood. Judge Laughrey should be removed from this case and then impeached as her judgements can be bought.
Judge Nanette Laughrey must recuse herself from this case as she is guilty of conflict-of-interest
Conflict of interest.
Undue influence is undue influence. Judge Laughrey should recuse herself, if she does not , she should be charged with conflict of interest. Barring her from being a judge would be appropriate, as well. Go get a job at PP if you want one so bad, Judge Laughrey.
Judge Laughrey, please do the honorable action of recusing yourself from the PP case. Thank you.
Do the right thing!
Conflict of Interest? This Judge Should uphold the Law & Revoke this License....
Your not "your honor", "your a disgrace"! Signed an adoptive parent, get it you liberal loon!
Judge Laughrey and Mr. Kelly what happened to you? Where is your compassion for life, God's gift to us.
Judge Laughrey, recuse from case 2:15-cv-04273-NKL
since your husband, a lobbyist was at the site cited.
The law needs to be inforced. We need to be within the boundaries of the law and set.
There is no logic reasoning that this Judge must "recuse" herself from this case! It's time this kind of nonsense to stop! She's a Judge who should have "common" sense to excuse herself!
Glaring conflict of interest. Judge Laughrey must be recuse herself from the Planned Parenthood case.
Conflict of interest requires Judge Nanaette Laughrey to recluse herself from this case.
Due to a conflict of interest Judge Laughrey needs to recuse herself from this case. Judgement is comprised, and she should be removed from the bench.
Arthur F. Mott, Jr.,
Richard L. Sparks,
In the interest of due process, the judge would necessarily have to step down...
An honest judge would want to be transparent and would recuse themselves from this case
Due to the appearance of justice being clouded by your ruling on this case, please do the right thing and recuse yourself from the case.
David L. Cross,
William F Mc Laughlin,
Abortion is nothing but legalized murder.Even criminals with multi crimes are not executed
Conflict of interest!!
Sr. Ellen M. Bayer, OSB,
This judge seems to be too bias! Please have her recuse from Planned Parenthood case immediately.
Philip R. Meetze Sr.,
Seems illegal to me. If it appears wrong,it is.
A flagrant appearance of impropriety - shame on you - recuse yourself!
Joseph T. Gazarik,
Judge Laughery has a conflict of interests based upon him having direct family ties to Planned Parenthood Federation of America and their lobbying effort.
On a case involving the most controversial moral issue in the country, blind justice can only be served by the honorable judge recusing himself from this case. Respectfully, Joseph T. Gazarik
