3 Militia Groups Connected to Unite the Right Rally Settle Lawsuits

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

Three more militia groups involved in the Unite the Right rally have agreed to not come back to Charlottesville under certain conditions.

A lawsuit filed by Georgetown Law, and joined by the city and businesses, is attempting to prevent unauthorized paramilitary groups from returning Charlottesville. Defendants in the lawsuit face five counts involving actions from August 12, 2017, including "falsely assuming the functions of peace officers" and "strict subordination."

The Pennsylvania Light Foot Militia, New York Light Foot Militia, and III% People's Militia of Maryland all entered consent decrees Wednesday, May 16, in Charlottesville Circuit Court. As a result, they will not come back to the city as part of a group of two or more while armed with any potential weapon at any demonstration or protest.

The League of the South entered a similar legal agreement on March 27.

1. I am guessing "strict subordination" is referring to the State Constitution

which says:

Article I. Bill of Rights
Section 13. Militia; standing armies; military subordinate to civil power

That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.
