The battle over records from the Planned Parenthood clinic in Storm Lake remains at a stalemate. A district judge ruled the agency must turn over the requested records of pregnancy tests by August 17th to the Buena Vista County Sheriff’s Department. The records are being sought in connection with the investigation of the death of a newborn baby, discovered May 30th at a recycling center south of Storm Lake. Planned Parenthood director Jill June says they’re hoping to get a higher court ruling before the deadline.She says they’re preparing papers to ask for a stay from the Iowa Supreme Court. And they want the ruling overturned. Buena Vista County officials says the records the seek are not confidential medical records.June says they’re disputing that claim and say releasing the records would be a violation of state law. June says the attempt to get the records is a shot in the dark.She says there are no suspects or any indication linking the baby to the clinic. The department has requested the names, addresses, and birth dates of women whose pregnancy tests were positive at the Storm Lake clinic between August 15th and May 30th.
