The doctrine of vicarious liability . . .

20+ years ago the SPLC won a civil law suit against Tom Metzger, his son, and his white supremacist group. The suit was on behalf of a victim of a vicious murder by skinheads of a defenseless black man.

"Using the doctrine of vicarious liability, plaintiffs' attorneys argued that the Metzgers should be found liable for intentionally inciting the skinheads to engage in violent confrontations with minorities. A jury agreed, returning a record $12.5 million verdict against the Metzgers and WAR. Tom Metzger was personally responsible for $5.5 million of that sum."

Where did the shooter get his hatred? A gay group? The SPLC? Where?

Yes, this doctrine now turns itself back on SPLC. Thanks for that info.
