In 2007 the Thomas More Society, on behalf of neighbors, sued Planned Parenthood of Chicago and the City of Aurora, the former for violating multiple zoning ordinances when building its Aurora abortion mill under false pretenses and the latter for saying “that’s ok” when PP’s subterfuge was discovered.

Since 2007 PP/Aurora have filed 3 separate motions to dismiss.
Today there was a huge victory for our side….

DuPage Co. Judge Neal Cerne ruled today that TMS’s zoning case can proceed. The judge denied PP’s latest motion to dismiss and upheld the main count of the suit, that PP willfully violated local zoning and building laws during the development and buildling process of the Aurora mill.
Judge Cerne ordered the defendants to answer TMS’s complaint within the next month.
Now the case gets juicy. TMS attorneys plan to subpoena PP and Aurora officials to testify under oath about the full details of the zoning and development process of the Aurora mill.

Recall the now infamous July 2007 Chicago Tribune story that started the mess, when Trombley uttered words he may eat, even if belatedly:

Neighbors who drive by the bustling construction site in Aurora think they are seeing the completion of the “Gemini Health Center,” just as the sign says….
But in a few weeks the sign will be changed to reflect the true owners of the building: Planned Parenthood….
“Frankly, I’m surprised we were able to keep it a secret for so long,” said Steve Trombley, president and chief executive officer of PP/Chicago Area, carefully avoiding a freshly painted wall as he offered a tour of the facility. “We didn’t want anything to interfere with the opening … and, at this point, I don’t anticipate anything will stop that from happening.”

Famous last words? If our side wins, PP will have to close and sell… or demolish the building.
