    Daily Stormer Founder Should Pay Troll Storm Victim $14 Million, Judge Says

    The publisher of a neo-Nazi website should pay more than $14 million in damages for encouraging an online anti-Semitic harassment and intimidation campaign against a woman in 2016, a federal magistrate judge in Montana recommended on Monday.

    In his opinion, the judge, Jeremiah Lynch, also recommended that the publisher, Andrew Anglin, be made to remove all blog posts from the website, The Daily Stormer, that encouraged readers to contact the woman, Tanya Gersh, and her family.

    Within months of Mr. Anglins call for a troll storm against them, Ms. Gersh and her family had received more than 700 vulgar and hateful messages, many referring to the Holocaust. They temporarily fled their home.

    Mr. Anglin did not appear in court, and his location is unknown. He did not respond to an email on Monday requesting comment on the lawsuit. And it was not clear how much money if any could ever be collected from him.

    The judges recommendations await review by Judge Dana Christensen of United States District Court.

    Mr. Anglin is already facing a $4.1 million judgment awarded in June to the comedian Dean Obeidallah in a different lawsuit. That one stemmed from an article falsely accusing the comedian of being a terrorist.

    The lawsuit filed on behalf of Ms. Gersh came after The Daily Stormer published a series of articles attacking her after dealings she had with Sherry Spencer, the mother of the white supremacist leader Richard Spencer. The Southern Poverty Law Center filed the suit against Mr. Anglin in April 2017.

    Ms. Spencer wrote a blog post that accused Ms. Gersh, a real estate agent in Whitefish, Mont., of threatening and extorting her to sell a building and break ties with her son. Mr. Anglin then called for the troll storm by his readers.

    On Thursday, Ms. Gersh testified about the emotional toll from the years of harassment.

    At one point, she fled her home with her husband and son, who was 12 at the time, because of a threat that an armed group of people was going to march on her house, according to David Dinielli, a deputy legal director at the center, who is representing Ms. Gersh. The march never happened, and she returned home.

    No one should be terrorized for simply being who they are, Ms. Gersh said in a statement. This lawsuit has always been about stopping others from enduring the terror I continue to live through at the hands of a neo-Nazi and his followers.

    Mr. Anglin did not appear in court for a deposition hearing in April, and his lawyer withdrew from the case, Mr. Dinielli said. Mr. Anglin did not appear at Thursdays hearing either.

    The opinion filed by Judge Lynch recommended that a default judgment be entered against Mr. Anglin. The judgment in favor of Mr. Obeidallah also came as a default because Mr. Anglin never appeared in court.

    Judge Lynch, who found that Mr. Anglin had acted with actual malice and that his conduct was egregious and reprehensible, recommended that Ms. Gersh be awarded more than $4 million in compensatory damages and $10 million in punitive damages (the maximum under state law).

    When asked about the likelihood of Ms. Gersh receiving any money, Mr. Dinielli said it was more important that she demonstrated to the world that even a real estate agent from Montana can take on the worlds most notorious neo-Nazi.

    Mr. Dinielli said the court is required to wait at least two weeks after a magistrate judges recommendation before a ruling can be made.

    Mr. Anglin has not appeared since his lawyer was excused, Mr. Dinielli said, and has made no further indication that hell be participating in any way in these proceedings.

    Mr. Anglin has faced several lawsuits in the past few years.

    In addition to the lawsuits filed on behalf of Ms. Gersh and Mr. Obeidallah, he was sued in 2018 by Taylor Dumpson, the first black woman to serve as American Universitys student government president. She became an online target after her inauguration.

    Neo-Nazi Website Daily Stormer Ordered To Pay $4.1 Million To Dean Obeidallah

    A federal judge today ordered the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer and its controversial editor Andrew Anglin to pay $4.1 million to Muslim Comedian Dean Obeidallah for falsely accusing him of being the mastermind behind the 2017 terrorist attack at a U.K. pop concert that left 22 dead.

    According to the New York Times, Obeidallah earned the ire of Anglin for a 2015 Daily Beast column that spoke of the bone-chilling attraction to Trump by white nationalist groups. Its almost like they view Trumps candidacy as their last stand against the changing demographics of America. Hes become the poster child for their philosophy that White Lives Matter More.

    Daily Stormer readers took offense to Obeidallahs comment and threatened him with bodily harm over social media and in the storys comments section, according to the paper.

    In a June 13 ruling, Chief U.S. District Judge Edmund A. Sargus Jr. of the Southern District of Ohio, noted that the website Anglin founded in 2013 that denigrates Jews and other minorities acted with actual malice when they published false statements that Obedallah committed crimes of terror, including murder.

    Sargus awarded Obeidallah $3.28 million in punitive damages along with $470,000 in economic damages and $350,000 in non-economic damages along with his attorneys fees and costs. He also issued a permanent injunction ordering the removal of any content that describes Obeidallah as a terrorist or a member of ISIS.

    Enforcing the courts order may be difficult since Anglins whereabouts are unknown and he is thought to be living outside the U.S. He didnt respond to an email request for comment for this story and didnt retain a lawyer to fight Obeidalllahs lawsuit. There also was no discussion of the case on The Daily Stormer website, which calls itself the most censored publication in history.

    Anglin has other legal troubles.

    The Southern Poverty Law Center filed suit against in 2017 after he organized an harassment campaign against Tanya Gersh, a Jewish Realtor from Whitefish, Mont., after she urged Shari Spencer,, the mother of White Supremacist Richard Spencer, to sell her condo and donate some of the proceeds to the Montana Human Rights Network to avoid a public backlash. Anglin failed to show up for a deposition in the case in May in New York City, setting the stage for a default judgment.

    American University student leader Taylor Dumpson filed suit against Anglin last year after he urged followers to harass after she became the African-American woman to serve as student government president at the Washington, D.C. college.

    According to the Anti Defamation League, Anglin is controversial even among other white supremacists because hes reportedly had romantic relationships with Asian women. He is funding his operations with Bitcoin and reportedly got a $60,000 donation of the cryptocurrency in 2017 from an unknown benefactor after the controversial Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    The Times reported that Obeidallah host of The Dean Obeidallah Show on SiriusXM and weekly I Want To Be Your Muslim Friend podcast, was planning to donate his award to organizations fighting white supremacy.

    $14 Million for (allegedly) getting 700 abusive Emails amounts to $20.000 per Email!!!!!!!!

    You can see how these Jews make their money and I'd willingly receive 'vulgar and hateful' messages @ $20.000 a time ... it certainly beats working for a living!
