March 11, 1966
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

George Rockwell, head of the American Nazi Party, appeared in Criminal Court here today on disorderly conduct charges stemming from a scuff between him and a number of enraged Jewish spectators in the Supreme Court building here in 1960.

The Nazi received a postponement to March 30 and his $100 bail was continued, Marvin Berger, a Jewish attorney who volunteered his services to Rockwell, obtained the postponement after Rockwell was arrested last month when he came to New York to address a rally at Columbia University. He was seized on the 1960 warrant before he could make his scheduled address.
