Anti-semite Files $100,000 Libel Suit Against Jewish Publication in Chicago

The Sentinel Publishing Company, publishers of the Jewish Sentinel, an Anglo-Jewish weekly, are being sued for libel by Elizabeth Dilling, notorious anti-Semite and one of the defendants in the recent mass sedition trials in Washington.

The $100,000 suit, which is the third one to be filed against the Sentinel within six months by nationally known anti-Semites, is based on an article, which appeared in the Sentinel, demanding the continuation of the sedition trials. The other suits are being brought by George Vose, one of the Gerald K. Smith’s henchmen, and Joe McWilliams and eight other defendants in the sedition trials.
