Lawyers speak after ruling against organizers of 2017 Unite the Right rally

1 00:00:00,420 –> 00:00:06,510 >> The jury found a conspiracy to commit violence on the streets of Charlottesville as 2 00:00:06,510 –> 00:00:12,510 to each and every defendant and then awarded substantial damages 3 00:00:12,510 –> 00:00:18,090 both compensatory and punitive damages. So we feel that justice was served today 4 00:00:18,090 –> 00:00:23,550 . There is going to be accountability for the people who did this and we 5 00:00:23,550 –> 00:00:29,160 are so grateful for everybody for supporting us and hanging in 6 00:00:29,160 –> 00:00:30,440 with our plaintiffs. 7 00:00:30,690 –> 00:00:37,290 >> And I think this verdict today is a message that this country does not tolerate violence 8 00:00:37,290 –> 00:00:42,600 based on racial and religious hatred in any form and that no one 9 00:00:42,600 –> 00:00:47,940 will ever bring violence to the streets of Charlottesville Virginia ever again because 10 00:00:47,940 –> 00:00:53,460 they now know what will happen if they do. I think that at the end. They 11 00:00:53,460 –> 00:00:56,160 lost to a couple of. You know. Due process defendants. 12 00:00:56,940 –> 00:01:03,260 >> Some solo practitioners. And. You know. I 13 00:01:03,260 –> 00:01:04,160 think that in the end. 14 00:01:05,240 –> 00:01:10,760 >> The pointed plaintiffs counsel may have underestimated. Well a lot of things but I think they underestimated their 15 00:01:10,760 –> 00:01:11,240 opponents. 16 00:01:12,260 –> 00:01:17,510 >> Big time. To be honest I thought if they went for the plaintiffs the damages would’ve been larger. And. So I think 17 00:01:17,510 –> 00:01:22,790 we did a decent job on the defense side. Cutting the damages down to size even though it is many millions of dollars. 18 00:01:23,580 –> 00:01:28,880 >> I think they were out two and a half days. They. They discuss things fully. They were in there all day. They stayed 19 00:01:28,880 –> 00:01:34,370 a little bit late a couple of days. They did their job. I definitely respect the job the jurors did. But 20 00:01:34,370 –> 00:01:39,850 lawyers have jobs too and we’re going to do all we can to cut this down to size and I guess we’ll have round two and the first two claims to.
