  4. Roy Gutterman:

    I can see this popping up more and more, it would be reasonable to see similar suits popping up with the events in Charlottesville. Left-wing protesters clash with conservatives over the scheduled appearance of Milo Yiannopoulos. ( The Associated Press) Last August, a rally in opposition to the removal of a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee on the campus of the University of Virginia turned violent as white supremacists and neo-Nazis clashed with counterprotestors. Heather Heyer, 32, was killed when James Alex Fields Jr. drove a 2010 Dodge Challenger into a crowd on a pedestrian mall. Roy Gutterman predicted the success of any future lawsuit depends on the motives of the plaintiffs, and how the court rules.
