Jury Slaps Unite The Right Organizers With Millions In Damages Over Racist Violence

E-mail Print PDF

A panel of 11 jurors in Charlottesville, Virginia, decided against a group of white nationalist defendants and ordered them to pay millions in damages on Tuesday, concluding a lengthy and unconventional trial that sought to hold them financially accountable for working to spread hate.

The jury was unable to reach a verdict on two main claims, which included whether the defendants conspired to commit racially motivated violence.

Still, the defendants will likely be forced to pay six-figure damages each to nine plaintiffs who joined the August 2017 demonstrations against the “Unite the Right” rally ― two days of clashes between far-right extremists and counterprotesters that left one woman dead, dozens injured and a scar on modern American history.

In total, defendants are currently on the hook for more than $25 million.
