On 8 April 2013, the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of San Bernadino ordered Mr Vinay Bharadwaj to pay the attorney fees for His Divine Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s organizations, to take action against the willful, false allegations against Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s organizations and abuse of the process of law.
In a short hearing for a Motion for Attorneys fees brought by defendants in the case of Vinay K. Bharadwaj v. Nithyananda Foundation, et al (Case No.CIVRS1013793), Honorable Judge Keith Davis granted the defendant’s’ motion in its entirety and described the motion as “well taken”. Judge Davis further commented that the nearly $400,000 in requested fees was “reasonable and appropriate” given the prolonged litigation which consisted of numerous motions, filings, hearings and rulings.
The Court had earlier in November 2012 dismissed Bharadwaj’s baseless complaint with prejudice and with terminating sanctions against Bharadwaj, including importantly the non-cooperation of Vinay Bharadwaj with the judicial process.
Vinay Bharadwaj had made the same complaint to the Karnataka police alleging multiple instances of unnatural sex abuse. He is also serving a prison sentence in Seattle prison for 3 counts of second-degree child abuse and 1 count of a gross misdemeanour.
Here is the order.
