A California judge has denied an actress’ request to remove from YouTube an anti-Islam video that sparked riots in the Muslim world.

Cindy Lee Garcia says she has received death threats over the film trailer, in a lawsuit against Google, which owns YouTube, and a man linked to the film.

Garcia said she had been misled by the maker of the amateur movie and was unaware of its anti-Muslim content.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the trailer’s alleged producer, is in hiding.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Luis Lavin said in his ruling that he had rejected Garcia’s request partly because the man who is believed to have made the film had not been served a copy of the lawsuit.

“The request for a temporary restraining order is denied,” Judge Lavin said. “The plaintiff has not shown a likelihood to prevail on the merits.”

Before appearing in court on Thursday, Garcia said she had been left emotionally disturbed by the fallout from the film trailer.

“My whole life has been turned upside down in every aspect,” she said. “My family has been threatened.”

Referring to the video, Garcia added: “I think it’s demoralising, degrading. I think it needs to come off [YouTube].”

A clip for the US-made film, Innocence of Muslims, was dubbed into Arabic, provoking widespread anger for its disrespectful portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad.

But a lawyer for Google said actors did not have rights over how their films were interpreted.

“If we viewed it that way we’d say that Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg in Terminator was a factual statement about Arnold Schwarzenegger,” lawyer Timothy Alger told Reuters news agency.

Last week, YouTube did block access to the video in Egypt and Libya.

On Wednesday, it extended restrictions to “countries where it is considered illegal by local authorities. That is, to date, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.”

Some countries, such as Pakistan and Sudan, have blocked access to the clip themselves.

Garcia has also filed a lawsuit against Nakoula for fraud and slander. In court documents, Garcia says she had been led to believe the project was a desert adventure film.

“There was no mention of Mohammed during filming or on set,” the lawsuit said. “There were no references made to religion, nor was there any sexual content of which Ms Garcia was aware.”

The trailer has sparked furious protests across the Middle East, North Africa and as far away as Sri Lanka.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stephens, were killed last week during an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

A total of 30 people have died in seven countries as a result of the protests.

Sergio Garcia came to the U.S. illegally as a child.

June 19, 2012

An undocumented immigrant should be licensed to practice law even though his ability to work will be restricted, the state bar told the California Supreme Court on Monday.

The agency said Sergio C. Garcia, 35, had met all the requirements to become a lawyer and could work without pay or as an independent contractor if licensed. The granting of a law license does not confer a right to employment, the State Bar of California argued, and Garcia would be expected to act legally.

“While a license to practice law is necessary to obtain employment as an attorney, having a law license does not mean that the holder may be employed,” attorneys for the bar said in a written filing.

The argument came in response to a request from the state high court, which is examining whether Garcia’s undocumented status should prevent him from becoming licensed. The case is expected to attract a flurry of briefs from immigration rights activists because it will set a precedent.

Garcia came from Mexico as a toddler, returned to his homeland with his family when he was about 9 and reentered the country illegally with family members when he was 17.

He attended law school at Cal Northern School of Law and passed the bar examination on his first try. His father, who has obtained American citizenship, sponsored Garcia for a green card 18 years ago, but the application is still pending.

Bar officials, defending their recommendation, reminded the court that people who attend law school in California on a student or visitor visa have been admitted to practice law in the state.

“After receiving their law licenses, they may return home to their countries of origin, they may remain here and attempt to adjust their status, or they may seek lawful permanent residence,” the bar said. “However, the grant of a law license provides no guarantee of a pathway to lawful employment in the United States for these individuals.”

The bar also noted that the California Legislature appeared to favor granting law licenses to undocumented immigrants. The Legislature in 2005 passed a law permitting law school graduates who are ineligible for a Social Security number to provide alternative forms of identification when applying for a license.

Employers, who could be sanctioned for hiring an undocumented worker, should not misinterpret a law license as proof of legal residency, the filing said.

“No reasonable employer would assume that the issuance of a law license to an individual relieves them of their obligation to verify employment eligibility,” the bar said.

An undocumented immigrant “can engage in an independent contractor relationship or perform pro bono services” and licensing such a person would be “consistent with all applicable laws and regulations” and would not encourage violation of the law, the bar said.

Two immigration lawyers, asked Monday about the legality of such a person working as an independent contractor, expressed different views.

Thomas Langford, a Northern California immigration lawyer, said such work by an undocumented immigrant would be “unauthorized employment” and “a violation of his status.”

But Helen Sklar, a Los Angeles immigration lawyer, said it was “not illegal for an undocumented worker to accept payment for services” and observed that “a person is not deportable for working without authorization.”

The state Supreme Court has not decided whether to hold a hearing on Garcia’s case before issuing a ruling.

Garcia has said he would like to do litigation and personal injury law. While awaiting a decision from the court, he is working with his father in Northern California as a beekeeper.
