Facing Lawsuit, More Militia Groups Avoid Charlottesville

Posted: May 16, 2018 4:55 PM Updated:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Three militia groups and their commanding officers who took part in a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville have agreed not to return for any coordinated armed activity in the future.

A law center representing Charlottesville and other plaintiffs who sued the militias and others announced the consent decrees Wednesday.

Georgetown Law's Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection says that brings to 11 the number of defendants who have entered into consent decrees resolving claims against them in the lawsuit. The case aims to prevent the type of violence that broke out at the August "Unite the Right" rally from happening again.

Intense streete brawling erupted before the event began Aug. 12, and authorities forced the crowd to disband. Later, a car plowed into counterprotesters, killing a woman and injuring dozens.
