Federal Judge Denies Matthew Heimbach's Motion to Strike Portions of Complaint

Matthew Heimbach and Donald Trump are two defendants in Nwanguma v. Trump, which is currently being litigated at the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky.  The gist of the plaintiffs' lawsuit is that Trump induced Heimbach and a veteran to physically attack leftists who were protesting a Trump rally.

Heimbach, who is representing himself, filed a motion to strike portions of the plaintiffs' complaint.  Specifically, in the plaintiffs' complaint, they:  (1) yelp about Ronald Reagan's philosophy; (2) whine about how the Southern Poverty Law Center dislikes Heimbach; (3) disparage the Traditionalist Worker's Party for opposing miscegenation; (4) note that Heimbach was banned from entering the United Kingdom on account of his political views; (5) note that Heimbach previously praised Pat Buchanan and George Wallace; and (6) discuss how Heimbach recruits members to join his Traditionalist Worker's Party at Trump rallies.

The plaintiffs are clearly grandstanding, and the content of the plaintiffs' complaint which was referenced above has nothing to do with whether Heimbach assaulted and/or battered the plaintiffs and is liable to them therefor.

Due to the ruling of the federal judge, the lawsuit against Heimbach and Trump will continue; a scheduling conference will occur and the parties will thereafter be permitted to propound upon one another discovery requests.
