The Daily Dot reports:
Lawyers for a Jewish woman suing prominent white supremacist Andrew Anglin have served their lawsuit in a local Ohio newspaper after being unable to find him for almost five months. In new court filings, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) lawyers said an Ohio court clerk has published a legal notice in the Daily Reporter, a legal and business newspaper published daily in Columbus, Ohio, the same state as several addresses tied to Anglin. The notice must run for six weeks before the plaintiffs can claim they have served the lawsuit.
“Plaintiff has worked diligently to comply with the steps necessary to effect service under Ohio law, including working with the Clerk for the Franklin County, Ohio, Court of Common Pleas to effect service by publication,” reads the filing. “The Clerk has now placed a legal notice of this action in a newspaper of general circulation in Franklin County, Ohio, where Defendant’s last known address is located.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s lawsuit claims Anglin launched a “terror campaign” or “troll storm” on Gersh, a Jewish real estate agent living in Montana, via a series of articles he published on the Daily Stormer. “These articles caused his followers to overwhelm Ms. Gersh with hundreds of hateful and threatening anti-Semitic phone calls, voicemails, text messages, emails, letters, social media comments, and false online business reviews,” the lawsuit reads.
