Suit Moving Forward Against Neo-Nazi Organizers of Deadly Charlottesville Rally

HeadlineJul 10, 2018

And in Virginia, a federal court has ruled that a civil rights lawsuit against the neo-Nazis and white supremacists who planned last year’s deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, can move forward. The lawsuit filed by Charlottesville residents argues the organizers of the August 2017 “Unite the Right” rally violated the 1871 Ku Klux Klan Act and the 1866 Civil Rights Act. The suit specifically names prominent white supremacists, including Jason Kessler, Richard Spencer and James Fields, who killed anti-racist protester Heather Heyer when he drove his car through a crowd of counterprotesters.
