LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska is seeking a $ 9,300 judgment from militia group Oath Keepers for failing to provide workers’ compensation compensation to its only employee in the state.
The Oath Keepers is an anti-government group with nearly 20 members indicted in the January 6 riot on the United States Capitol.
The Nebraska attorney general’s office on Tuesday registered an earlier judgment against the group in Lancaster County District Court, the Lincoln Journal-Star reported.
Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court Judge Dirk Block said Oath Keepers and his chairman E. Stewart Rhodes of Montana did not appear at a hearing to provide proof of the accident insurance of the work after its cancellation on July 24, 2019.
The group paid one person $ 36,500 between July 2019 and March 2021 but failed to provide the required insurance, according to the order.
The judge imposed a fine of $ 15 per day, totaling $ 9,330.
