Court Quickly Rejects Contempt Motion Against Google By Innocence Of Muslims' Actress
from the nice-try,-but-no dept
Well, that didn't take long at all. Following Cindy Lee Garcia's bizarre motion for contempt last week, claiming that Google was thumbing its nose at the 9th Circuit's bizarre order to take down all copies of the Innocence of Muslims "trailer" in which she appears for 5-seconds, Google hit back with an exasperated explanation for why nearly everything written in her motion for contempt was simply false. Apparently it was fairly convincing, because the court has wasted little time in denying the motion for contempt, providing no explanation whatsoever. The entire order reads:
Appellant's emergency contempt motion... is denied.
So much for that little wasteful diversion. Now we wait to see if the en banc 9th Circuit will revisit whether or not it's appropriate to issue a stay on the injunction against Google.
