Alleged Charlottesville Attacker, White Nationalists Sued over Fatal Crash

17 August 2017

The suit claims the crash caused both plaintiffs "to slam into the dashboard and windshield leaving them with serious injuries to their head and extremities".

Tadrint and Micah Washington, the plaintiffs who were in a vehicle that was hit during the attack Saturday, are seeking $3 million in damages.

The plaintiffs were driving home when Fields' auto struck their auto, and some pedestrian victims were hurled onto the vehicle, reports Reuters. Heather D. Heyer, 32, was killed, and several others were injured.

According to Kenneth Abraham, a law professor at the University of Virginia, which is in Charlottesville, the Washingtons have a "conceivable", but challenging case ahead of them in their 28-page suit against the white nationalists.

Organizers of the massive and violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville on Saturday are facing a $3 million lawsuit filed Tuesday by two victims in a auto attack that killed one and injured 19. He has been charged with second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death, according to CNN. Calling the vehicle attack an act of domestic terror, he said he wanted to represent the Washington sisters who experienced the violence first hand.

For the John Does mentioned in the suit, Litzenburg said the firm intends to add people and organizations as they are identified in photos and videos.

Sisters Tay and Micah Washington were driving home on Saturday, August 14.

According to the document, the plaintiffs were "severely injured and suffered great physical, mental and emotional pain and injury and required and received medical care and treatment and incurred medical expenses".

The suit accuses Fields of assault and battery, as well as negligence.

The sisters claim that the "Unite the Right" organizers incited a riot and were reckless in "assisting Fields in his effort to commit violence for the objective of furthering the shared conspiratorial goal of their organization".

Kessler has denied that violence was intended at the rally.
