Law Firm Boots Partner Who Owned Neo-Nazi Record Label

By on August 23, 2017 in Law Firm Management

Black MetalAaron Davis, a partner in the Minneapolis law firm Patterson Thuente, was placed on leave after the firm learned that Davis owned a neo-Nazi record label.

Minneapolis City Pages lists some of the albums and songs on Davis’ Behold Barbarity Records and Distro, including “Kill the Jews” and “At the Dawn of a New Aryan Empire.”

In a post on the Above the Law site, Elie Mystal offers some commentary: “There are a lot of things you can do while being a neo-Nazi. You can start your own record label. You can buy tiki torches, freely and without prior restraint. But a private employer has no duty to hire you so you can menace the people you work with your genocidal views.”
