Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, has rejected the Islamic group CAIR’s latest motion in their lawsuit attempting to silence critics.
In the suit brought by CAIR against Dave Gaubatz and his son, Chris Gaubatz, authors of Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That’s Conspiring to Islamize America, and the Center for Security Policy (CSP) and several of its employees, Kollar-Kotelly found that the brief filed by the American Freedom Law Center in defense of CSP had merit and denied CAIR’s motion to extend discovery.
Kollar-Kotelly also denied the request from CAIR to depose two non-party witnesses, and plans to try to wind the case up.
Chris Gaubatz worked at CAIR as an intern, gaining information from accessing 12,000 pages of CAIR’s documents and recording some of its employees which Gaubatz and his father used in their book. CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 case against the Holy Land Foundation, which was convicted of supporting Hamas with more than $12 million in funding. Read more here.
