Minnesota hate group leader Bradlee Dean sued Rachel Maddow last year after Maddow quoted Dean verbatim seeming to express support for countries that execute gay people. Maddow successfully called for the silly complaint to be dismissed, and a judge agreed, ordering Dean to also cover Maddow’s legal fees. He requested a stay on that punishment, and yesterday it was denied. He now must pay Maddow $24,625.23 before November 13 or he could be held in contempt of court.

Here again is Maddow’s original report about Dean’s rhetoric:
