US judge decides for continuation of anti-Muslim video on Youtube
Los Angeles: On Thursday, a Los Angeles judge refused to order YouTube to take down a controversial film clip, The Innocence of Muslims.

According to the report, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Luis Lanvin ruled that Cindy Lee Garcia failed to show that she would likely prevail on the merits of her request, despite the actress's claim that she was tricked into appearing in the inflammatory film.

The YouTube clip has triggered violent anti-American riots and protests in more than 20 countries, and has led to at least 28 deaths, including the killing of US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. Garcia filed a lawsuit to force Google to take down the video.

In her complaint on Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Garcia claimed that she was duped into acting in the "hateful anti-Islamic production". She accused filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula of misrepresenting the movie at casting and during filming in the lawsuit against Google, YouTube and Nakoula, also know as "Sam Bacile".

Garcia claimed that Nakoula "intentionally concealed the purpose and content of the film". "There were no references made to religion nor was there any sexual content of which Garcia was aware. Bacile represented to her that the film was indeed an adventure film and about ancient Egyptians," according to the lawsuit.

Calling the film "vile and reprehensible", Garcia said that her voice had been dubbed in Arabic, making her out to be a religious bigot.

But YouTube owner Google had opposed Garcia's emergency request. Garcia's lawyer Cris Armenta said that Garcia would keep fighting to have it removed.
