'Alt-Right' Group Founder May Be Nixed From Rally Lawsuit - 2019-06-19
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The millionaire founder of an "alt-right" think tank may be dismissed as a defendant in a lawsuit related to a deadly white nationalist rally in Virginia.
The Daily Progress reports Judge Richard E. Moore on Tuesday heard arguments about whether to dismiss William Regnery II.
Regnery is the publisher of a far-right website and founder of the National Policy Institute led by white nationalist Richard Spencer. Spencer helped organize the 2017 rally that killed a woman and injured several people, including two sisters who later sued more than a dozen people connected to the rally.
