Auf wiedersehen, alt-right

Elizabeth Sines, et al. v. Jason Kessler, et al., the federal lawsuit over the epochal white riot that engulfed Charlottesville in 2017, is over. It ended just before 3 p.m. today, giving the jurors plenty of time to head back to their central Virginia hometowns for the long Thanksgiving weekend. That timing was a factor, observers around the courthouse noted, that likely played an outsized role in what ended up being a weird but ultimately satisfying verdict.
