Its opinion still sharply questions the property seizure.
The three-judge 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in Cincinnati affirmed Friday a lower court ruling that the marshals were legally protected from being sued while carrying out a court order for seizure of property against Michael Bray.
Court documents show the order came after a Planned Parenthood organization in Oregon won an $850,000 award against Bray in a lawsuit against activists they sued for intimidation by threat of force against abortion providers.
The panel called the Wilmington, Ohio, raid “a home attack” on Bray’s ability to express ideas.
