Gonzalez v. Planned Parenthood (9th Cir. - July 22, 2014)

Lefties generally don't decry the Supreme Court's heightened pleading standards in Iqbal and Twombly.  But I'll bet dollars to doughnuts they'll like the applications of those standards by the Ninth Circuit in this case.  Applied to dismiss a qui tam lawsuit against Planned Parenthood for allegedly overbilling the government for contraceptives delivered to low-income women.

Let the internal conflict begin.
