US judge denies bid to take down anti-Muslim film
Los Angeles: An actress who appeared in the anti-Muslim film blamed for sparking violence in the Middle East has lost another legal bid to have the trailer taken down from YouTube.
A federal judge in Los Angeles denied a motion for injunction yesterday by Cindy Lee Garcia. It wasn`t immediately known whether Garcia`s attorneys would file an appeal.
Garcia lost a similar legal challenge in state court when a judge rejected her lawsuit in September.
The film enraged Muslims and ignited violence in the Middle East, killing dozens.
Garcia said she was duped by the man behind the film, Mark Bassely Youssef and the script she saw referenced neither Muslims nor Mohammad. She also said her voice had been dubbed over after filming. (
