Daily Stormer Lawsuit — SPLC Sues Neo-Nazi Website for Engaging in Harassment Campaign

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which according to a mass shooter Floyd Lee Corkins, inspired an attack on a conservative group, has filed suit on a behalf of a woman who was targeted for harassment by a neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, along with its Montana co-counsel, filed suit in federal court today against the founder of a major neo-Nazi website who orchestrated a harassment campaign that has relentlessly terrorized a Jewish woman and her family with anti-Semitic threats and messages.
The lawsuit describes how Andrew Anglin used his web forum, the Daily Stormer — the leading extremist website in the country — to publish 30 articles urging his followers to launch a “troll storm” against Tanya Gersh, a real estate agent in Whitefish, Montana. Gersh, her husband and 12-year-old son have received more than 700 harassing messages since December.

Cernovich was dubbed “Cernok*ke” by the Daily Stormer and is no stranger to their trolling tactics.

Cernovich Media will provide ongoing legal analysis from experts like Marc Randazza.
