Judge Upholds Lawsuit Against White Supremacists Involved in Deadly Charlottesville Rally

A federal judge this week decided that a lawsuit against the racist organizers of the "Unite the Right" rally last August can go to trial. The judge dismissed some allegations but found that the suit falls under the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, which was designed to curb violence against African Americans after the Civil War. 

The trial in the case, brought by 13 people who were hurt or attacked by racists at the rally, is scheduled for July 2019.
