A white supremacist accused of assaulting a protester at a Donald Trump campaign rally in Louisville a year ago has filed a lawsuit against the president, arguing he "relied on Trump's authority to order disruptive persons removed".
Three people who claim they were assaulted at the Trump rally filed a lawsuit previous year against Trump, his campaign, Heimbach and Bamberger.
Bamberger's lawyers also argued that any damages awarded to the protesters in the case should be paid by Trump or his campaign.
In his filing, Bamberger cited other Trump rallies, saying the president and his campaign "repeatedly urged people attending" the rallies to "remove individuals who were voicing opposition to Trumps candidacy" and promised to pay the legal fees of those who removed protesters.
Judge David J. Hale of U.S. District Court in Louisville ruled recently that the suit against Trump can proceed, finding it "plausible" that Trump's directions advocated the use of force. However, his attorneys said that his comments were not directed at the crowd. Trump could be heard saying "get 'em out of here" from the stage at that rally.
Trump's lawyers, however, have also maintained that then-candidate Trump was not directing the remark at his supporters and that his statement is protected by the First Amendment.
The lawsuit comes after three protesters, Kashiya Nwanguma, 21, Molly Shah, 36, and Henry Brousseau, 17, sued Trump, Bamberger and a third man, the white nationalist Matthew Heimbach.
"Bamberger had no prior intention to act has he did", the attorneys wrote.
Bamberger, Heimbach and a third man, Joseph Pryor, were charged last summer with misdemeanor harassment by Louisville police.
"[Bamberger] denies that he assaulted that woman, lacks knowledge or information sufficient to form a belief as to the woman's identity, and denies the characterization of his actions as "most aggressive" or 'shoving. and striking, '" the cross claim reads.
April 16 (UPI) - Donald Trump can't be sued for inciting his supporters because the president is immune from civil lawsuits, his lawyers said in federal court filings.
They gave 15 defenses of the president, among them, the president "is immune from suit because he is president of the United States"; that the protesters waived their claims by getting tickets to the rally; and that the protesters "suffered no actual injury" while also being "responsible for their own injuries". "I was caught up in the frenzy".
