Neo-Nazi website founder refuses to be in US for deposition
A neo-Nazi website operator says he refuses to be present in the U.S. for questioning under oath in a lawsuit that accuses him of unleashing an anti-Semitic “troll storm” against a Montana real estate agent’s family.
The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin says he lives abroad and claims it’s too dangerous for him to travel to the U.S. But a federal magistrate judge ruled last Friday he must be present in the U.S. for a deposition by Tanya Gersh’s attorneys from the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Anglin, an Ohio native, said in an email Tuesday that he is unwilling to be deposed in the U.S. despite the judge’s decision. He suggested the law center refuses to meet him abroad or question him remotely because it wants him to be harmed.
