“Two can play at that game,” is the position of former Berkeley College Republican President Troy Worden.
After being singled out by Antifa thugs at fascism ground zero at UC Berkeley, Worden was hit with a frivolous temporary restraining order by Antifa’s head thuggette, Yvette Felarca — who also happens to be a public middle school teacher (no surprise there).
But Worden beat the TRO by proving to the court that he did absolutely nothing — aside from frowning at her at a public event — to warrant being restrained.
The problem is he was forced to disrupt his normal duties at the college for over a month while the order was being litigated.
And now that it’s been tossed out, he is counter-suing Felarca for attorneys fees and court costs for the frivolous suit.
Good for him.
Antifa may think the Bill of Rights is obsolete at Berkeley, but the common law legal system thankfully is not.
Here’s more from Hotair…
UC Berkeley isn’t a very welcoming place for conservative students. The “birthplace of the free speech movement” has been ground zero for the attacks on conservative speech on college campuses.
One conservative has had enough and has filed a lawsuit against a leader in the Antifa movement. Berkeley College Republicans’ former president Troy Worden is seeking $100,000 in damages from Yvette Felarca, an organizer for national activist group By Any Means Necessary (BAMN).
Felarca filed the restraining order for stalking and intimidation against Worden on September 7. It was dismissed on October 26th. That’s a significant amount of time for Worden to be painted with Felarca’s accusations. Worden’s attorney Mark Meuser alleges the Antifa leader, who is also a middle school teacher, made false claims against the college student in order to file the restraining order.
Felarca also testified that Worden took a selfie with her Feb. 17 and then “made a grimacing face” after the photo was taken, according to Meuser. Meuser said, however, that his team presented the court with evidence that Worden was working for the University of California at the date and time that Felarca alleged this incident occurred.
Meuser said Felarca also testified that Worden “stared at her” on a few occasions when she was handing out fliers on Sproul Plaza. He alleged that Felarca “made up” the two incidents of harassment and used instances of Worden staring at her in public as reasons for the restraining order.
“You are not entitled to a civil restraining order because somebody stares at you in a public place,” Meuser said. “We beat the temporary restraining order … (and) we are now coming against her for the attorney fees and costs in defending Troy.”
