“We will argue that the court must reverse the attorney fee because misogynist men who stalk and harass political leaders like Yvette and try to drive women out of public life should not get the sanction of and financial windfall from the California courts,” Cruz said in an email.

During the argument, Worden’s lawyer Harmeet Dhillon argued that the legal fees awarded to Worden are justified, and that Worden’s First Amendment rights have been impaired during this process…
