It was the fall of 2017 when David Mills was asked by fellow Cooley attorney Alan Levine to come to Charlottesville, Virginia, to meet the residents they would represent in a civil lawsuit against the alleged organizers of the deadly “Unite the Right” rally that took place just weeks earlier.

Four years later, Mills is now part of the legal team that is taking the case to trial. Three law firms are representing the nine plaintiffs, all residents of Charlottesville when violence broke out in the small city on Aug. 11-12, 2017. Some of the attorneys, like Mills, have been working on the case before the first complaint was filed.
