No. The prosecution specifically tried to tie him to a group (the primary definition of vigilante) and failed. He was proven, on many videos, to be out there "protecting" (essentially a deterant), offering first aid, and extinguishing fires. He didn't try arrest anyone or use any force whatsoever to enforce any laws on his own. He used force in self defense and gave himself up to law enforcement.
IANAL either, but I would think that vigilante is a fairly generic adjective, and would be difficult to win a defamation lawsuit objecting to the usage. Tying him to a specific group or accusing him of a specific act which is objectively true or not true would seem to be a more risky proposition, but I can't imagine him getting a judgement for not being happy with the terminology used to describe him.


Definition of vigilante
: a member of a volunteer committee organized to suppress and punish crime summarily (as when the processes of law are viewed as inadequate)
broadly : a self-appointed doer of justice

Inal, and I know defamation cases against the press are extremely difficult to win in the US, but anyone calling him a white supremacist or vigilante has to be worried about getting sued, no?

Also not a lawyer, but I watched one on YouTube who said that it would be very hard for him to prove damages against anyone, given the damage done to his reputation by the state...

Perhaps those calling him a a white supremacists would be a different story.

My 2-year old and 6-month old were at the doctor, and when the doctor put on gloves to examine the 6-month old, she turned around and saw my 2-year old standing next to her, gloves on as well.

Spoiler alert: the $180 is the donation before mine. Mine was substantially smaller...

But my real answer: You're just jealous!  :P

Apparently, the Benny persona is not that good with prices.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things

Speaking of the Benny persona, Dan should sue for impersonation, as he is the real Benny impersonator...

(For those who didn't see it, Benny Friedman came a few minutes late, so they introduced the guy in the middle as 'the cheap Benny Friedman,' and he sat in until the real Benny showed up. R.I.P. Timmy)
