Posted on 09/19/2019 6:47:32 AM PDT by Mrs. Don-o
Over the years, the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has faced numerous lawsuits for defamation and other claims. The SPLC earned its reputation by suing the Ku Klux Klan, and in recent decades it has accused various organizations of being "hate groups," listing them along with the KKK in a cynical attempt to raise money and destroy its political enemies.... Every lawsuit against the SPLC has been stalled or dismissed or settled, with none reaching the discovery process a legal process by which a plaintiff can investigate the internal documents of the organization or person he or she is suing.
...The discovery process threatens to reveal the SPLC's hidden documents...
Nelsen's entering the discovery process has huge implications...
...[More] than 60 organizations are considering their own lawsuits against the SPLC. He said Nelsen's lawsuit will likely "bolster other cases; there's no question about it."
...[Any] documents Nelsen files in court are public record for others to inspect, report on, or use in other lawsuits unless they're sealed. After CIS filed its RICO lawsuit, the SPLC asked the court to penalize CIS for filing a frivolous lawsuit. While the judge struck down the lawsuit, she did not say it was frivolous and did not penalize CIS....
"I think that the SPLC itself is inspiring more people to file lawsuits by its reckless labeling of people 'hate groups,'" Staver told PJ Media. "The SPLC is the real inspiration for these lawsuits."
He noted that litigation often follows a "typical pattern of suits that were not successful and then began to get some traction and eventually began to get a significant amount of traction."
Citing the SPLC's settlement with Nawaz, Staver said the lawsuits against the SPLC may be crossing the threshold. "There's more traction building," he insisted.

Not a win--- yet --- but the good guys are on the right track. The SPLC deserves to be bankrupted.
Read the whole article. What the thugs at SPLC did to the Robinson Jeffers Boxing Club will make your blood boil.
SPLC = “If you’re not left of center, you’re a hate group.”
How about, Social Police Limiting Conservatives
The SPLC is a group of corrupt lawyers who found it more profitable to ‘sue’ and then settle, rather than having to go through a trial and then lose all the money.
That’s why they take on these ‘snowflake’ cases. They know they can’t win the case, but that the media will put pressure on the defendant group to settle or have their business ruined.
You do readers a great disservice by not including the full name of the person and organization suing in your excerpt.
Consider that for the next time you post.
They have almost a BILLION dollars, must of it stashed in bulging overseas bank accounts in the Carribbean.
Repeatedly when they hit $300 million or so they claimed they’d stop their aggressive fund-raising:
With greedy pockets overflowing, the avaricious SPLC never did.
In my (not entirely adequate) defense), it was a long piece that I struggled to get comprehensibly down to 300 words. In my own comment, I urged the FReepers to read the whole article.
I would LOVE to see that bunch of Communist maggots blown to smithereens.
I met Morris Dees’ ex wife. She said he doesn’t give a rip about any of this and is only doing it for the money. Shocked, I’m sure...
Wonder how much money Holder & Co. steered to this group?
Interesting question. I’m sure there’s a lot of political money-and-influence incest going on.
Thank you for your responsiveness and good humor.
I assume competence on the part of the article posters and leave it to them to correct.
Names credit is important because one tends to forget who said or did what but even more important in this case as:
1)there are and likely will be a slew of lawsuits against SPLC and
2)lawsuits are looked up and cited by names of plaintiff and defendant.
And thank you—many thanks—for posting this important piece of news.
