Laura Loomer Is Suing After She Was Banned from Orlando Courthouse During Trial of Florida Shooter’s Wife

Published

on

On Friday, an independent journalist was banned from a federal courthouse in Orlando while covering the trial of Noor Salman, wife of Omar Mateen, the Pulse Nightclub shooter.

Now, Loomer tells Big League Politics that she is filing suit on First Amendment grounds against District Judge Paul G. Byron. She will be represented by Larry Klayman, the legendary attorney who also represents CIA and NSA whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, whose testimony could sink Robert Mueller (that case is currently in court in D.C.)

“I was escorted out w/ force from the Orlando federal court house by a US Marshall as I was sitting in the press room waiting for a verdict in the #NoorSalman trial,” Tweeted Laura Loomer. “They said the judge has issued a court order, BANNING ME from the courthouse for the duration of the trial.”

HuffPo reports that Loomer, who they describe as an “alt-right provocateur,” had her media credentials revoked the previous day after she “harassed” Salman’s family outside the courthouse with “questions about Muslims, jihad and Easter.”

Of course, HuffPo left out the fact that Loomer asked the questions during a press briefing, and that the Omar Mateen and his father Seddique both had ties to radical terrorist organizations. Asking questions about these types of things used to be what journalists did, not that HuffPo would understand.

Loomer rightfully mocked the once-relevant news organization for their report:

“It is now considered “highly inappropriate” to ask questions about Juihad during a press briefing for a federal ISIS terrorism trial,” Loomer said. “Guess you can’t criticize jihad in America…”

To make matters worse, Loomer’s phone was confiscated by the U.S. Marshal who ejected her from the court:

“When I said I was going to record the incident for my own legal protection as I was being escorted out, the US Marshall who was probably like 250 pounds forcefully grabbed my hand and took my phone away from me & said he was confiscating my phone,” Loomer said. “This is an extreme 1A violation.”

Salman was charged with providing material support for an international terrorist organization, after her husband shot and killed 49 people in an Orlando nightclub in 2016. Friday, she was acquitted.

“A verdict of not guilty did NOT mean that we thought Noor Salman was unaware of what Omar Mateen was planning to do,” the jury foreman told the Orlando Sentinel.  

The foreman said that the jury was not tasked with deciding whether Salman knew of the crime in advance, and in fact they were convinced that she DID know of the planned attack. She will now be free to potentially assist in another terrorist attack.
