Troy Worden, the Berkeley College Republicans president at the center of an in-house power struggle, proclaimed victory in a different battle last week after a judge dismissed a temporary restraining order initiated against him by local antifa celebrity Yvette Felarca.
“We asked for the TRO and the whole case to be dismissed from the outset, as it is based on an entire fabrication,” Attorney Harmeet Dhillon of San Francisco-based Dhillon Law Group, representing Worden, said in an email Saturday. “The Court limited the TRO to 10 yards at the first hearing, then dismissed it altogether at the next one. The parties were discussing what date to have the hearing on the permanent injunction so our client could put on his case, which includes several videos and several witnesses proving his innocence and that he was at other places during some of the times Felarca claims she was harassed.
“The hearing was supposed to be on Thursday afternoon. We had made clear we would seek attorney fees and sanctions. Felarca’s counsel dismissed the case in the morning,” Dhillon continued. “We went to court anyway to ask for permission to file our papers seeking fees and costs and put in our evidence to support that. We plan to seek fees, costs, and sanctions in this matter.”
