CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Jason Kessler, the man behind the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, has filed another federal lawsuit against people in positions of power that day.

On Wednesday, November 7, Kessler filed the suit against the city of Charlottesville, former Police Chief Al Thomas, and Virginia State Police Lieutenant Becky Crannis-Curl, who was in command of all state troopers on the ground on August 12, 2017.

The suit alleges that both Charlottesville police and VSP did not do enough to stop the violence that occurred that day, and that Kessler and his supporters did not get to fairly express their freedom of speech.

Identity Evropa, the national socialist movement, and the Traditionalist Worker Party are also plaintiffs in this lawsuit.
