MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A neo-Nazi website operator must disclose his net worth to attorneys for a Montana real estate agent who sued him for orchestrating an anti-Semitic “troll storm” against her family.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeremiah Lynch on Tuesday ordered The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin to turn over a financial statement of his current net worth by March 29 or else the court will impose sanctions against him.

Tanya Gersh sued Anglin in Montana in April 2017, claiming anonymous internet trolls bombarded her family with hateful and threatening messages after Anglin published their personal information, including her 12-year-old son’s Twitter handle and photo.

In a string of posts, Anglin accused Gersh and other Jewish residents of Whitefish, Montana, of engaging in an “extortion racket” against the mother of white nationalist Richard Spencer.
