Kentucky: Millions Awarded to Teen Beaten by KKK

In a case that drew large media attention Friday, the jury has awarded $2.5 million to a teen who was severely beat by the Klan after they incorrectly identified him as an illegal immigrant.

In a serious blow to the terrorist organization, the law center responsible for the lawsuit could seize the Klan's assets, including the headquarters, a 15-acre compound in Dawson Springs, Kentucky.

"All I could see was a bunch of feet," Gruver, now 19, testified. "As they were kicking me, I prayed to myself."
The incident left Gruver with several broken bones, cuts and bruises.
