— Nine people who sued white nationalist leaders and organizations over the violence at a deadly rally in Charlottesville in 2017 won a $26 million judgment for the injuries and trauma they endured.

Many of the defendants are in prison, in hiding or have dropped out of the white nationalist movement.

He said the plaintiffs’ lawyers who sued him “just wasted $20 million to try and play Whac-A-Mole with public figureheads.”.

Other plaintiffs’ lawyers, including those in the Charlottesville civil case, also have secured default judgments against Anglin.

Typically, plaintiffs’ lawyers will seek court orders to seize assets, garnish wages and place liens on property owned by defendants.

Attorney James Kolenich, who represented three defendants, including James Kessler, the lead organizer of the rally, said although some of the white nationalist organizations have some assets, “I don’t think any of them could afford to pay out of pocket these damages.”.

Brian Levin, director of the Center for the Study of Hate & Extremism at California State University, San Bernadino, said the plaintiffs’ lawyers may be able to recover some of the damages because of the sheer number of defendants named in the lawsuit.

“The thing that’s different about this case is you have a wide array of defendants.

Two of the defendants are in prison

“Accountability can’t be underestimated in a case like this,” Segal said
