A Montana woman estimates she will have lost at least 1.3 million dollars as the result of a Worthington-based neo-Nazi website publisher telling his followers to unleash an anti-Semitic "troll storm" against her in 2016. 

Tanya Gersh is asking for a default judgment in her civil lawsuit against Daily Stormer publisher Andrew Anglin.  She says Anglin caused her pain and suffering beyond the 1.3 million in economic losses. She also is seeking punitive damages for what she calls Anglin's malicious campaign of harassment and terror. Gersh and her family received threats after Anglin accused her of trying to force the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer to sell her property. The judge has scheduled a July 11 hearing.
