Judge Throws Out Lawsuit Against Black Lives Matter, Can’t Sue ‘Non-Entity’

Oh, come on!

A U.S. district judge ruled that Black Lives Matter “is not an entity of any sort” and therefore can’t be sued. He threw out a case launched against the terrorist organization and one of its leaders, DeRay Mckesson, by a police officer who was injured by a rock thrown at a protest organized around the shooting of Alton Sterling.

In his 24-page ruling, Judge Brian Jackson said, “Although many entities have utilized the phrase 'black lives matter' in their titles or business designations, 'Black Lives Matter' itself is not an entity of any sort.”

Jackson also said that Mckesson, who wasn’t the accused rock thrower, was “solely engaged in protected speech” for his involvement at the rally held last summer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

"It's clear that I did nothing wrong that day and that the police were the only violent people in the streets," said Mckesson. “The movement began as a call to end violence and that call remains the same today."

Donna Grodner represented the unnamed officer in the case. She also filed a suit on behalf of a sheriff’s deputy who was wounded in a shootout that killed three officers in Baton Rough last year, as WRAL reported. Black Lives Matter, Mckesson, and other leaders in the organization are cited in the suit for “inciting violence that led to the deadly ambush.” Judge Jackson is still reviewing that case.

Mckesson has sued Baton Rouge and its police force for allegedly using “excessive force” against BLM protesters and violating their Constitutional rights. However, his attorney argues that BLM can’t be sued because no single person has claimed it: “This is a movement, and there isn't a person who is responsible for it, or the leader or the founder of it.”

Grodner doesn’t agree, saying, “It's organized. They have meetings. They solicit money. They have national chapters. This shows a level of national organization."

WRAL also reports on the many times the BLM leader has skirted punishment:

Mckesson was one of nearly 200 protesters arrested after Sterling's shooting death. He was arrested near Baton Rouge police headquarters on a charge of obstructing a highway. The local district attorney declined to prosecute roughly 100 protesters who were arrested on that same charge, including Mckesson…

Mckesson and Black Lives Matter also were named as defendants in a federal lawsuit that Larry Klayman — founder of the conservative group Freedom Watch — filed last year in Texas after the sniper attack on Dallas police officers. A judge's ruling on June 2 said the plaintiffs didn't provide the court with any support for their "proposition" that Black Lives Matter is an entity capable of being sued. All of Klayman's claims against Mckesson and Black Lives Matter have been dismissed or withdrawn.

The video above is all the proof we need to see how organized Mckesson's movement is despite his claims to the contrary.
