I apparently missed this when it happened. This is for a civil lawsuit.

It continues ...

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke must turn over his emails, social media messages and other communications about the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned deadly last summer, a federal magistrate ruled Thursday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph Wilkinson's order gives Duke until June 18 to turn over records. They've been requested by attorneys who sued far right extremists who participated in the "Unite the Right" rally last August.

Duke isn't a defendant in the federal lawsuit, but plaintiffs' attorneys served him with a subpoena for any communications he had with other white nationalists before and after the rally, including Facebook messages and direct messages on Twitter.

Duke, a Louisiana resident, appeared at the rally in Charlottesville, where a woman was killed when authorities say a man drove a car into a crowd of counterprotesters. Several people injured in the violence sued the rally's organizers, participants and promoters, including white nationalist Richard Spencer and neo-Nazi website publisher Andrew Anglin.
