1988: Mulugeta Seraw, an Ethiopian law student in Portland, Oregon, dies after being beaten by three members of the Neo-Nazi group East Side White Pride the previous night. Two of the assailants would be convicted of manslaughter and assault, while a third would be convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. Seraw's father and son would later successfully file a civil lawsuit against the killers and an affiliated organization, holding them liable for the murder.
