Heather Johnson reports:
Activist and pseudo-journalist James O’Keefe must produce video footage and other communication in a discovery dispute connected to an invasion of privacy suit filed by an employee of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), a federal judge ruled.
The lawsuit stems from an attempted video “sting” conducted by O’Keefe, accompanied by defendant Hanna Giles, dressed as a prostitute.
Southern District Judge Mitchell Dembin ordered O’Keefe to produce all media that he has published that relates to the “nonconsensual taping or recording of others.”
