Anti-abortion activist David Daleiden has scored a victory in the Ninth Circuit, with judges finding a lower court’s order blocking his access to public information about researchers associated with the University of Washington’s Birth Defects Research Laboratory was too broad.

The temporary injunction will stay in place for no more than 120 days while the trial court gathers more information.
