Rights groups sue over moving of Virginia white nationalist rally

Rights groups sue over moving of Virginia white nationalist rallyU.S. civil rights groups filed a lawsuit on Thursday to have a white nationalist rally in Virginia moved back to its original venue, saying that city officials’ last-minute decision to shift the event violated organizers’ rights. The suit by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Rutherford Institute, a civil liberties organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia, comes ahead of Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, which city officials expect to draw thousands of participants and counter-demonstrators.
