A leading white nationalist told a judge on Thursday that his notoriety has made it difficult for him to raise money for his defense against a "financially crippling" lawsuit that names him as an organizer of a rally in Virginia that erupted into violence in 2017.

Richard Spencer's attorney has asked for the court's permission to withdraw from representing him in the civil case. The lawyer, John DiNucci, said Spencer owes him a significant amount of money in legal fees and hasn't been cooperating adequately.

Spencer told U.S. Magistrate Judge Joel Hoppe that the lawsuit over the "Unite the Right" white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017 has been "extremely expensive" and a "huge burden" for him.
