East County Today reports:
Court Orders BAMN Leader to Pay $11,100 to Former Berkeley College Republican President
Commissioner Thomas Rasch of the Superior Court of Alameda County ordered Berkeley By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) leader Yvette Felarca (@YvetteFelarca) to pay former Berkeley College Republicans (BCR) (@BerkeleyCRs) president Troy Worden (@TroyWorden) $11,100 for filing a frivolous civil harassment restraining order against Worden last year, today.
Rasch ruled that the restraining order had not been filed in good faith and ordered Felarca to pay Worden’s attorney fees.
Felarca, a Berkeley Middle School teacher who was twice arrested last year for incitement of a riot, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer, filed the frivolous restraining against Worden to stifle his freedom of speech at U.C. Berkeley after BCR had invited several conservative speakers to speak on campus. Berkeley’s actions in blocking those speakers are the subject of a separate federal civil rights lawsuit.
The court in Felarca’s restraining order case granted a temporary restraining order in September but then dismissed it in late October after repeated failures by Felarca’s lawyers to prove their case, and in the face of extensive evidence produced by Worden’s counsel showing that Felarca had fabricated her claims. Worden, represented by The Dhillon Law Group’s (@dhillonlaw) Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) and Mark Meuser (@MarkMeuser) filed a motion for attorney fees and sanctions against Felarca, which was heard today.
