Court Orders Nazi Leader To Return To US For Lawsuit

The Associated Press reports:

A neo-Nazi website operator must be present in the U.S. for questioning under oath in a lawsuit accusing him of orchestrating an anti-Semitic “troll storm” against a Montana real estate agent’s family, a federal judge has ruled.

The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin says he lives abroad and says it’s too dangerous for him to travel to the U.S., but Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch ruled Friday that Anglin’s personal safety concerns are “factually unsupported” and no basis for a protective order sparing him from an in-person deposition in the U.S.

One of Anglin’s attorneys, Marc Randazza, said in a text message Monday that his client has made it clear to him and to the court that he won’t return to the U.S.

Anglin claims to currently live in Cambodia after leaving the US in 2012, but investigators say there’s no evidence he’s actually left the US.
