Neo-Nazi publisher sued by Montana woman seeks trial delay
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The publisher of a neo-Nazi website accused by a Jewish woman of orchestrating an anti-Semitic harassment campaign against her is asking a magistrate judge to push back their January trial date.
Attorneys for Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin said in a court filing Friday that requests for information between Anglin and plaintiff Tanya Gersh are still pending and his case will be hurt if the Jan. 22 case isn’t delayed.
Anglin’s attorneys say Gersh doesn’t object to a delay.
Last month, U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen said the First Amendment’s free speech provisions does not prevent Anglin from being sued.
Anglin wrote on his website in 2016 that it was time to unleash a “troll storm” on Gersh, whom he accused of trying to force the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer to move out of Whitefish.
