Judge Recommends Daily Stormer Publisher Pay $14 Million to Woman Targeted with Anti-Semitic Trolling

HeadlineJul 17, 2019

A federal magistrate judge said the founder and editor of the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer should be ordered to pay over $14 million to a Montana woman who was the target of an anti-Semitic “troll-storm.” The Daily Stormer publisher, Andrew Anglin, mounted an online intimidation campaign in 2016 against Tanya Gersh, a Jewish real estate agent from the resort town of Whitefish. In the following months, Gersh and her family received hundreds of hate-filled messages, forcing them to temporarily leave their home.
