HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Berkeley teacher/Antifa leader ordered to pay $20,000 for withholding public records of her activism.

Last year Yvette Felarca was ordered to pay $11,000 to the former president of the University of California-Berkeley College Republicans for filing a bad-faith restraining order against him.

She’s best known for her documented assault of a man at a white nationalist rally in 2016, for which she’s facing a felony charge in Sacramento.

This year, the Berkeley public school teacher and Antifa leader has been ordered to pay even more to a conservative legal organization for withholding public records it sought under state law. . . .

Chhabria, an Obama administration appointee, was just getting started.

He said Felarca and her colleagues Lori Nixon and Larry Stefl made claims “premised on the obviously baseless assumption that the First Amendment condemns the ‘alt-right’ while condoning the ideological missions of their own organizations.” They are active in the radical group By Any Means Necessary.

Congrats to Judicial Watch for making her pay.
