The Nizkor Project: Remembering the Holocaust (Shoah)

Embattled Bigots:
A Split in the Ranks of the Holocaust Denial Movement

Aftermath of the "Battle"

Carto's efforts to regain power over the Legion and IHR moved to the legal arena. Thomas Kerr and Elisabeth Carto filed suit against the Legion for the Survival of Freedom (which now included O'Keefe, Marcellus, Weber, and Raven), and, in turn, the Legion filed suit against the Foundation to Defend the First Amendment (which included Willis and Elisabeth Carto). On August 3, 1994, William Hulsy, counsel for the Legion, told the court that a settlement had been reached, that neither side would take anything from one another, and the cases were dismissed.

The Carto/IHR feud, however, rages on. According to the August 15, 1994 issue of The Spotlight, the IHR filed another lawsuit against Carto, this time with Liberty Lobby as co-defendant, in order to "gain control of purported financial assets they claim belong to a bogus IHR 'board of directors' that the conspirators themselves appointed." Subsequently, according to a September 12, 1994 issue of The Spotlight, Carto filed another lawsuit against "the bogus directors [of IHR] forbidding them to continue fraudulently acting as directors."

Carto has also waged a letter-writing campaign against the "conspirators." Carto pleaded his case to IHR contributors on stationery with IHR letterhead, listing as an address a P.O. Box in Torrance, California, which, incidentally, he claims to be the "original and historic address for the IHR since the beginning."
