Maine sues Planned Parenthood foe, says he yelled too loudly
PORTLAND, Maine - Maine's attorney general is suing a protester who she says yelled so loudly outside a Planned Parenthood facility that he disrupted health care services there.
Attorney General Janet Mills filed a complaint under the state's civil rights act against 26-year-old Brian Ingalls, of Lisbon. She says he violated the rights of patients at the Portland facility Oct. 23 when the sound of his voice directed to the second floor interfered with the delivery of health care services.
A complaint says a police officer warned Ingalls to stop yelling so loudly, but he did not.
Ingalls declined to comment when reached Tuesday by email. Mills says Ingalls had the right to protest but not to disrupt.
Planned Parenthood didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
