A note sent from the jury to Judge Moon in the ‘Sines v. Kessler’ case just now - the jury asks “under punitive damages…can we separate out the amount that is awarded to individual plaintiffs?”
Moon proposes telling the jury no, “but only plaintiffs awarded compensatory damages will share in the punitive damages awarded”
Judge Moon says he received a letter from Chris Cantwell asking to be brought to the court whenever the jury asks any more questions… Moon says that the defense side can just have one person present while jury notes are being read.

Yesterday @TS_Lambert published a great article on the TPAs who are influencing this year's #yycvote. Please read it as it is a great primer on what we know so far.…

2\ before we dive into anything we need to talk about how the UCP has changed the rules. Now, only individual Albertans can donate directly to municipal campaigns. Corporations, unions and other orgs can no longer donate directly.

3\ as @TS_Lambert reports, these orgs can now donate directly to registered #TPAs who are permitted to use their funds to run ads related to #yycvote. There is no limit to TPA spending, but TPAs must report who they get their money from... Eventually

It wasn't just any group of protesters, either. It was #JewsAgainstICE, just a couple days after anniversary of Heather Heyer's murder much the same way in #Charlottesville by a neo-Nazi #UniteTheRight attendee.

Police then pepper sprayed them…
"An employee reached by phone at the Wyatt Detention Facility declined to comment early on Thursday. Messages left for the Central Falls Police Department and ICE weren’t immediately returned."

Yeah, I fucking bet they weren't
You can't support driving through Jewish protesters and in the same breath claim you are pro-Jewish because you support Israel fyi

Today I uploaded my 2017 UTR datasets to @internetarchive. 35,896 #UniteTheRight tweets from August 5 to August 14 and 28,485 #Charlottesville tweets from August 12 to August 14 are now available for download here:
.@edsu and I published research in 2017:… This graph shows 16,492 #UniteTheRight tweets that were deleted after Aug 12.

52% of the accounts that got suspended were created on or after August 11. Sock puppets were created en masse to boost the event.
The account polNewsForever was an obvious outlier in UTR graphs. This "news" account representing /pol/ boards from the chans was highly influential in UTR data and pushed narratives that leftists/antifa were responsible for violence.
