Judge says anti-Muslim clip can stay on YouTube



LOS ANGELES (AP) — A 14-minute film trailer blamed for protest violence in the Middle East will remain on YouTube, after an actress lost her legal challenge to take it down.

Cindy Lee Garcia, who appeared in ‘‘Innocence of Muslims,’’ asked a judge to order the video removed in a Los Angeles County court Thursday.

But Superior Court Judge Luis Lavin rejected Garcia’s request because she wasn’t able to produce any agreement she had with the makers of ‘‘Innocence of Muslims’’ and the man behind the film hadn’t been served with a copy of her lawsuit.

Garcia’s attorney, Cris Armenta, told reporters that her client plans to return to court in three weeks with more evidence to bolster her case.

1. I you have a case, they must erase

There is no reasonable course of action against Google/YouTube. There is most likely not one against the video makers either, based on the standard release. But it is the USA, where you can sue anyone at anytime for anything.
