Judge recommends $14 million award to neo-Nazi trolling victim

A US judge ruled that Neo-Nazi website publisher Andrew Anglin should pay $14 million in damages to a Jewish woman subjected to a ’troll storm’ at his urging. Anglin had allegedly published 30 articles on the Daily Stormer website about the woman, some of which had included contact information. She and her family subsequently received more than 700 harassing messages.

If this sets a legal precedent regarding so-called "troll storms," those Cavanaugh kids lawsuits are going to reap millions.

Very scary legal precedent. If we go down this rabbit hole there is no bottom to we will all run afoul of the law. The only way to save yourself would be turning to a hermit.
