(COLUMBUS DISPATCH) — Actor James Woods wants a judge to dismiss a $3 million lawsuit a Chillicothe woman filed against him for retweeting a comment that she gave the “Heil Hitler” salute at a Trump rally last year.
Dispatch Reporter Earl Rinehart notes that the Chicago Tribune posted a photo of a woman giving the salute on March 11, 2016. A follower incorrectly retweeted that the “Trump Nazi” was Portia Boulger, according to the suit filed in federal court here last month.
