Dean Obeidallah win 4.1 M from Daily Stormer

Daily Beast Contributor Wins $4.1 Million From Neo-Nazi for ISIS Smear

After Dean Obeidallah wrote a Daily Beast article condemning President Trumpís approach to white supremacist terror in 2017, the neo-Nazi site The Daily Stormer website falsely accused Obeidallah of being behind an ISIS attack.

Now The Daily Stormerís founder is being forced to pay him millions for the smear.

Obeidallah, a comedian and radio host, sued Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin for defamation, and on Wednesday a judge ordered Anglin to pay $4.1 million in damages.

Anglin, who has been on the lam for more than a year, didnít testify, although his father did. The ruling comes as the latest legal strike against Anglin, who is currently avoiding another lawsuit by a Jewish woman who received death threats after Anglin attacked her on his site.

1. Didn't know about this lawsuit, but great for Dean

I've heard him on Sirius and he's smart and well informed.

We follow each other on Twitter as well.

2. ! Good for Obeidallah

Hope they squeeze the money out of the Stormers.

Believe Obeidallah said he would donate the money to organizations that fight hate.

5. If not

can the judge order the website auctioned off? Maybe forced into bankruptcy when a judge decides on the other case?
