LOS ANGELES (AP) — An actress who appeared in an anti-Muslim movie trailer that sparked violence in the Middle East has filed a federal lawsuit in Los Angeles against the filmmaker and YouTube to have the clip taken down.

The complaint filed Wednesday by Cindy Lee Garcia cites copyright infringement and seeks unspecified damages. Garcia’s attorney, Cris Armenta, says YouTube and its parent company, Google Inc., would be served with the suit Thursday.

Last week a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge denied a similar motion filed by Garcia to have “Innocence of Muslims” removed.

Violence sparked by the film broke out Sept. 11 in Egypt and Libya, and an attack that day on the U.S. consulate in Libya killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others. Violence related to the film has since spread.
