White Supremacists Ordered to Pay $450G


— May 23, 2005

CHICAGO — A white supremacist convicted of soliciting the murder of federal Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow was ordered along with his followers to pay about $450,000 in attorneys’ fees in a copyright case in which the judge sided against him.

U.S. District Judge Samuel Der-Yeghiayan set the amount in an order made public late Monday in a civil lawsuit filed against a group formerly known as the World Church of the Creator.

The group, headed by white supremacist Matthew Hale, was sued in federal court by an Oregon religious organization, the TE-TA-MA Truth Foundation-Family of Uri, which claimed it owned the copyright on the name World Church of the Creator.
