Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler is joining forces with three white supremacist organizations to sue the City of Charlottesville for alleged violations of his First and Fourteenth Amendment rights, according to documents filed in federal court Wednesday. The plaintiffs are also suing former CPD Chief Al Thomas and Virginia State Police Lt. Becky Crannis-Curl.

The three groups — Identity Evropa, the Traditionalist Worker Party and the National Socialist Movement — each advocate for a white ethnostate and participated in the Unite the Right rally in August 2017, which culminated in dozens of injuries and the death of Charlottesville resident Heather Heyer.

This is Kessler’s third lawsuit against the City. He successfully sued in August 2017 after the City denied his permit for the Unite the Right rally, then sued again in March after the City denied his permit for the anniversary Unite the Right rally. The second suit was dropped in early August after Kessler declared the anniversary rally would be held in Washington.
