Protesters suing Trump over alleged attacks at Louisville rally

Three protesters who say they were physically attacked at a Donald Trump rally in Louisville, Kentucky, on March 1 have filed a lawsuit against the Republican presidential candidate and the two Trump supporters accused of attacking the protesters. 

Local police announced earlier this month they were investigating two alleged assaults at that rally

The suit, which also lists the Trump campaign as a defendant, was filed in Jefferson County Circuit Court Thursday. It claims the plaintiffs were peacefully protesting the rally when Trump stopped his speech to tell his supporters to "get ’em out of here." It says that’s when the Trump supporters assaulted Kashiya Nwanguma, Molly Shag and Henry Brouseau.

The document names white supremacist Matthew Heimbach and 75-year-old Alvin Bamberger as the two Trump supporters accused of assaulting the protesters, as well as a woman whose name isn’t known. She’s accused of punching Brousseau. 

The suit lists a number of other Trump rallies where there was violence and seeks unspecified monetary damages.
