Judicial Watch Scores Legal Victory Over Antifa Thug
A legal non-profit announced Tuesday that it scored a legal victory over a member of Antifa and By Any Means Necessary (BAMN), both violent leftist organizations.
“Judicial Watch announced that a U.S. District Judge in California awarded Judicial Watch $22,000 in legal fees in a case filed by an Antifa organizer in an effort to block Judicial Watch from obtaining information about her activities,” according to Judicial Watch.
Yvette Felarca, who is not only a member of the violent organizations, but also a middle school teacher in the Berkeley Unified School District, sued the school district to stop it from handing over “records of their communications mentioning: Felarca, Antifa, and/or BAMN. Judicial Watch also asked for Felarca’s personnel file.
Subsequently, Judicial Watch had to take legal action to obtain the information which the school district was legally obliged to hand over.
Felarca stood trial for assault earlier this year stemming from a 2016 incident in which she and two others were arrested and charged with a litany of crimes, including a felony assault, after they allegedly incited a riot in Sacramento.
U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria of the Northern District of California wrote in his ruling that Felarca’s suit against the school district “entirely frivolous.”
“Judicial Watch is entitled to attorney’s fees because the plaintiffs’ lawsuit was frivolous, and their litigation conduct was unreasonable,” the Judge reportedly said.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton was thrilled over the legal victory.
“This is a huge victory for Judicial Watch against Antifa and the violent left,” he said. “Ms. Felarca attacked Judicial Watch without basis and the court was right to reject her ploy to deny our ‘right to know’ because we don’t share her violent left views.”
