Anyone ever heard of a successful one?
ColorLines is reporting that hate crime victim James Craig Anderson's partner of 17 years will not be allowed to participate in the civil lawsuit that Anderson's family has brought against the seven white teens who participated in his murder. The state of Mississippi will not allow James Bradfield, Anderson's male partner of 17 years, to be part of the family's civil suit because same-sex partners in Mississippi have no claim in civil actions like the one the family is putting forward.
Hate Crime Victim's Partner Banned From Lawsuit
Jordan Gruver was 16 years old in 2006 when he was severely beaten by several KKK members who thought he was an illegal immigrant.
Gruver, an American citizen of Panamanian and Native-American descent, suffered a broken jaw, bruised ribs and permanent nerve damage in his arm because of the hate crime.
The Southern Poverty Law Center sued the countrys second-largest Klan group on behalf of the teen. The Klansmen who beat Gruver were convicted and they severed two years in prison. Edwards represented himself and denied the charges, saying the group is not generally violent.
Last week a jury ordered Imperial Klans of America grand wizard Ron Edwards and two former lieutenants to pay Gruever $1.5 million for lost wages and medical expenses and for Edwards to pay him $1 million in punitive damages.

CHICAGO The Chicago Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Inc. and Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, today filed a hate crime lawsuit on behalf of the family of Antwana Muhammad against three men who allegedly perpetrated a racially motivated campaign of harassment against them from September 2006 through October 2010. The Muhammad family, which is African-American, filed the suit in Cook County Circuit Court against David Belardo, Daniel Hilbert, and Steven Schultz.
According to the complaint, four years of harassment against the family culminated on March 26, 2010 when Belardo, Hilbert, and Schultz spray-painted racial epithets, including ****** and KKK on the Muhammads garage in a successful effort to intimidate and terrorize them, causing them to suffer great emotional stress and damages. The lawsuit seeks compensatory damages for violation of civil rights and emotional distress, as well as punitive damages.
Belardo, Hilbert, and Schultz were criminally charged for this act. Belardo pled guilty to a hate crime, while Hilbert and Schultz each pled guilty to criminal defacement of the Muhammads and other neighbors property.
