Lawsuit aims to hold nebulous ‘antifa’ to blame for injuries

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A conservative writer from Portland, Oregon, is suing purported elements of the nebulous far-left militant groups collectively known as antifa. Thursday’s suit comes days after President Donald Trump blamed antifa activists for inciting violence at nationwide protests over police killings of black people. The suit was filed on behalf of Andy Ngo, who is known for aggressively covering and video-recording demonstrators. Ngo says he was assaulted while covering protests in Portland a year ago. Video of the attack was widely viewed online. Rose City Antifa, one of those named in the lawsuit, did not respond to requests for comment.
