Kessler, Redneck Revolt agree to court order barring return to Charlottesville in armed groups

Here is a full article on the case from The Daily Progress by Ruth Serven.

Jason Kessler on Thursday promised to be active in discouraging organized, armed groups from returning to Charlottesville, casting doubt on his ability to hold an anniversary Unite the Right rally this August.

Kessler and Redneck Revolt, an anti-fascist group, signed consent decrees this week, resolving a lawsuit brought by Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection. The lawsuit sought to prevent nearly two dozen white nationalist groups, militia groups and their leaders from paramilitary activity at protests and demonstrations in Charlottesville.

Kessler and Redneck Revolt were the only two defendants remaining. Under the 19 consent decrees and four additional default judgments expected to be entered by the court, the other defendants have already agreed not to engage in paramilitary-like activity in the city.

“Should Kessler hold an anniversary rally in Charlottesville on August 12, as he has vowed to do, these court orders ensure that he and other participants will not repeat the organized and intimidating displays of paramilitary power that led to chaos, fear, and violent confrontations in the city streets last year,” said Mary McCord, senior litigator at the Georgetown Center in a news release.
