COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man is receiving $5,000 in a judgment against former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke as part of a lawsuit the man filed against white supremacists and neo-Nazi protesters.
Bill Burke, of Athens, Ohio, says he suffered severe injuries during a 2017 rally in Virginia two years ago.
Burke says he was struck by a car driven by James Alex Fields Jr., in a crash that killed a counterprotester during the rally.
Duke’s lawyer says Duke denies allegations that he promotes violence.
Burke’s lawyer called the judgment a step in the right direction against white supremacy.
