Court rules against white supremacists

More by this author

A federal appeals court has upheld a judge’s ruling in a lawsuit that a white supremacist group filed against the central Louisiana town where its members marched to protest support for the so-called “Jena Six.”

The Nationalist Movement settled its dispute with Jena officials over a permit for the January 2008 protest of an earlier demonstration in support of six black students charged with beating a white schoolmate.

But the group also wanted U.S. District Judge Dee Drell to consider allegations that two paraders were barred from bearing firearms during the protest.

Drell refused to consider those allegations because the two men weren’t members of the Nationalist Movement, a ruling upheld Wednesday by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
