Judge Orders Antifa Leader To Pay $20,000 In Legal Fees To Conservative Group Over ‘Frivolous’ Lawsuit

Remember Yvette Felarca? She’s the California middle school teacher who is also involved in a far left Antifa group called “By Any Means Necessary.”

She just got some very bad news from a judge.

The Berkeleyside reports:

Berkeley teacher Yvette Felarca ordered to pay conservative group $20,000

Berkeley teacher and activist Yvette Felarca must pay a national conservative group more than $20,000 in legal fees, a federal judge said Wednesday.

In his order, Judge Vince Chhabria called Felarca and her colleagues’ lawsuit against Berkeley Unified, in which conservative organization Judicial Watch was named a party, “frivolous” and “unreasonable.”

“This is an exceptional circumstance,” wrote Chhabria. He declined to award Judicial Watch the full $326,159 that the Washington, D.C. organization had sought.

The case stems from a 2017 records request filed by Judicial Watch. The group asked Berkeley Unified for all emails sent among district and King Middle School staff related to Felarca and her radical activism with By Any Means Necessary. Felarca has been a prominent figure at many local political rallies and is currently facing a felony charge in Sacramento for allegedly assaulting a neo-Nazi demonstrator…

Judicial Watch initially argued that the organization was entitled to more than $317,850 in attorney’s fees and $8,309 in litigation costs from Felarca, Nixon and Stefl. Chhabria reduced the amount to $22,000 in attorney’s fees (Felarca is responsible for $20,000; the other two must pay $1,000 each) and $4,000 in litigation costs.

Unfortunately for Felarca, the amount in legal fees she has been ordered to pay is really starting to add up.

Hot Air reports:

This isn’t the first time Felarca has been ordered to pay court fees. Last January she was ordered to pay Berkeley College Republicans President Troy Worden $11,000 to cover his attorney’s fees. It’s unclear to me how a Middle School teacher has money to pay for all of these lawsuit judgments.

We’re still waiting to see what will happen with the felony case against Felarca. In February her attorney claimed she was close to accepting a plea deal in the case. Since then there haven’t been any updates on the case.

How is she going to afford all this on a school teacher’s salary?

Might be time to call George Soros.
