Andy Ngo Emerges Victorious in Court, Receives $300,000 in Groundbreaking Antifa Lawsuit

In a significant victory for free speech and journalistic integrity, Portland-based journalist Andy Ngo was awarded $300,000 in damages by Multnomah County Circuit Judge Chanpone Sinlapasai.

The ruling came after a lawsuit accusing three alleged Antifa rioters of physically assaulting him during protests in 2019.

Ngo, known for his fearless reporting on the violent activities of Antifa, has been a target of the group’s ire for years.

His relentless pursuit of truth and justice has exposed the dangerous tactics employed by these extremists, leading to an increase in public awareness about the threat they pose to public safety.

However, this exposure came at a great personal cost to Ngo, who endured physical attacks, threats, and harassment from the group.

The lawsuit detailed a harrowing incident in June 2019 when Ngo was attacked during protests in Portland.

Unidentified members of Rose City Antifa assaulted Ngo, leaving him with severe injuries that required hospitalization.

According to the lawsuit, Ngo was diagnosed with a subarachnoid brain hemorrhage following the attack and continues to receive treatment for the severe pain, humiliation, and emotional distress he suffered.

The defendants in the case, Corbyn (Katherine) Belyea, Madison “Denny” Lee Allen, and Joseph Evans, now legally known as Sammich Overkill Schott-Deputy, were found liable for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Despite their failure to defend themselves in court, the judge ordered them to equally split the damage payments among themselves.

Despite the victory, Ngo remains realistic about the challenges ahead. He acknowledges that collecting the awarded damages will be difficult given the defendants’ history of evasion.

However, he remains undeterred in his mission to hold Antifa accountable for their violent actions.

This ruling is a testament to Ngo’s resilience and determination.

Despite a disappointing jury verdict earlier this month, where two activists were cleared of all civil liability in a lawsuit filed by Ngo, he continues to fight for justice. His courage and commitment to upholding the First Amendment rights are commendable.

Ngo’s victory is not just a personal one; it is a victory for all journalists who risk their lives to expose the truth.

It sends a clear message to violent extremists that their actions will not go unpunished. This landmark ruling sets a precedent for future cases involving violence against journalists, reinforcing the importance of press freedom in our society.

At the end of the day, Andy Ngo’s triumph in court is a beacon of hope for journalists everywhere. It serves as a reminder that the pursuit of truth and justice, no matter how perilous, is a noble endeavor that deserves recognition and protection.
