NASHVILLE (AP) — A judge has ordered the state of Tennessee to pay more than $46,000 in legal fees to a white nationalist group it unsuccessfully tried to charge for event security costs.

The Tennessean reports the Tuesday ruling approved a large portion of the original $56,000 in legal fee reimbursement requested by the New Century Foundation. The group has hosted its annual conference at the same state facility for years and challenged a new rule last year that required it pay for law enforcement and related damage.
