SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge in Northern California has thrown out a lawsuit by a fan of right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos against the regents of the University of California, the mayor of Berkeley and others.
Oakland resident Kiara Robles filed the lawsuit last year alleging University of California officials withheld police protection to her and others in the crowd because they were expressing a conservative viewpoint.READ MORE: Rain Helps Wash Away Fears Of Another Devastating Wildfire For Santa Rosa Couple
U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken on Friday dismissed nearly all of Robles’ claims, saying she hasn’t provided enough evidence to support them. Wilken allowed Robles to re-file one charge against an alleged member of a far-left activist group who she says shone a flashlight in her face, leaving her vulnerable to attacks.READ MORE: UPDATE: Phish Fan Injured After Being Fallen On at SF Chase Center Concert Describes Brush with Death
