WHOA: Nick Sandmann just dropped a WHOPPER of a lawsuit against the Washington Post!

The legal battle begins!

The attorneys for Nick Sandmann, the Covington Catholic student who was at the center of a media firestorm a few weeks ago with Nathan Phillips at the Lincoln Memorial, has now file a whopper of a lawsuit against the Washington Post, to the tune of $250 million dollars:

For truth, for justice, for Nicholas!

Today, Lin Wood and Todd McMurtry filed their first lawsuit on behalf of Nicholas Sandmann against The Washington Post. The lawsuit filed is included below. The suit seeks $250 million in both compensatory and punitive damages. Lin and Todd will continue to bring wrongdoers before the court to seek damages in compensation for the harm so many have done to the Sandmann family. This is only the beginning.

Wow! That would buy enough tacos for SooperMexican to last the rest of the year!



Seriously though, I hope he wins and wins big. The media need to be held accountable for what they’ve done to him, his family, and the other students.

Here’s a couple of bullet points from the lawsuit:

  • In a span of three (3) days in January of this year commencing on January 19, the Post engaged in a modern-day form of McCarthyism by competing with CNN and NBC, among others, to claim leadership of a mainstream and social media mob of bullies which attacked, vilified, and threatened Nicholas Sandmann (“Nicholas”), an innocent secondary school child.
  • The Post wrongfully targeted and bullied Nicholas because he was the white, Catholic student wearing a red “Make America Great Again” souvenir cap on a school field trip to the January 18 March for Life in Washington, D.C. when he was unexpectedly and suddenly confronted by Nathan Phillips (“Phillips”), a known Native American activist, who beat a drum and sang loudly within inches of his face (“the January 18 incident”).

If any of you are legal beagles and want to read the entire lawsuit, you can read it here.

Time to have a 65 million MAGA voters libel lawsuit against Jussie Smollet and anyone blaming Trump supporters for this heinous hoax done from pure evil hatred towards MAGA folks.

Dan Abrams’ “Law and Crime” site thinks Sandmann’s lawyers migh have blown it.

It’s sad that it had to happen this way, but I think this lawsuit stands a good chance. You don’t target and humiliate minors. You. Just. Don’t. A reckoning for the out-of-control media is long overdue, and may the WaPo be the first domino to fall. Fall, Babylon, fall.

Trump gave a shout out to Nick:

“The Washington Post ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump.” Covington student suing WAPO. Go get them Nick. Fake News!”

He also tweeted: “The Press has never been more dishonest than it is today. Stories are written that have absolutely no basis in fact. The writers don’t even call asking for verification. They are totally out of control. Sadly, I kept many of them in business. In six years, they all go BUST!”

I pray that this is the thing that puts the hurt and fear on the MSM to stop the fake news and pre-mature posting until true journalistic investigation is done. Because without the incentive of the Big Hurt, the MSM will continue in their rabid pursuit to destroy this country and anyone who gets in their way.

I doubt they will be able to pull of $250M, but if the judge sides with them, it could get up there in cost. The point of these types of damages is to make it sting. The question is, what amount is consequential to an outfit like the Post?

A Sandmann win against WaPo and others will create ripples that spread across the MSM. This BS is not acceptable.

I hope there’s a pic of him standing there with a giant check like a lotto winner. They probably went this big thinking they’ll settle out of court. This is just the first lawsuit of many. This isn’t even really about Trump. It’s about the left and media trying to destroy people who have different beliefs from them.

I wonder if Alyssa Milano is panicking yet.

Wasn’t WaPo sold for $1? I hope that the kids, especially Nicholas, cash in and very publicly donate a large portion of the award to pro-life organizations.

Can any of the MSM – “Multitudinous Sewer Minions,” fall any further in the trust citizens put in their reporting?
It’s clearly gone beyond “Fake News” which could be ascribed to lazy, or sloppy reporting. Somewhat excusable. Now however, it’s “Fraud News.” Intentional lying, deceiving, divisive and hate filled. Gee, that also describes the “journalist’s” master, the dem. party. Huh.

Good! I hope he wins against each and every one of them for very large sums of money. That is the only way they will learn, by hitting them where it hurts.

Music to my ears. I’ve gotten through about half of the document and it looks great to me. It is also laying out a case against the other perpetrators (partially, I’m sure they’ll have a lot more to say about them). I take this as notice to the 50+ others, and it’s pretty cool.

But I found this part heartbreaking:
“As a direct and proximate result of the False and Defamatory Accusations Nicholas suffers and will continue to suffer severe emotional distress.
As a direct and proximate result of the False and Defamatory Accusations Nicholas is forced to live his life in a constant state of concern over his safety and the safety of his family.”

If I were on a jury I’d give him much more than he’s asking for. It is heinous what they tried (and partially succeeded) to do to a kid.

Let’s hope the award is big enough that the whole WaPo editorial board cries themselves to sleep.

Because I really, really want to see the headline: “Punditocracy Cries in Darkness”

I think about what would have happened if that extra tape was not found. That is the point Linwood needs to emphasize. This is one reason why I want it to go to a jury trial in Kentucky. If that extra tape was not found the media would have crucified the kid and his friends. The media showed the vet demanding that their high school punish them and their future colleges punish them. They were out to destroy the kids’s futures. The kids are not public personalities and they are MINORS.

This is why I want this tried in a Kentucky courtroom because I think the Boys would definitely win and I actually think the jury may reward more money to set a precedent and to truly punish these media companies. Doing this might actually prevent this from happening again to another innocent person who is not in the public eye.

Yes….I am glad they are going for the big money because otherwise it would be a waste. These huge media companies think of a few million as chump change. These runaway media companies which now have become essentially the left’s propaganda tool, need to be held accountable in a very big way. The attorneys know that if this case is tried in Kentucky then chances are the jury will find the Washington Post as guilty. If I were on the jury, I would reward the boy a $1 billion. People are fed up with the propagandists and the liars in the media. The kavanugh case was another example of the media promoting stories that had not been vetted and were based on lies and anonymous sources. Mark my words, this case will be a landmark case that will force the media to reflect on their propagandist ways. I just hope… Read more »

I think the media totally deserves this lawsuit. But the real questions here are: 1.) Does AvatarSooperMexican really eat that many tacos in a year? 2.) Is Scoop trying to get this many tacos because he wants half?

It is about time the left was held responsible for their fake news, especially when destroying a minor child’s life to fit their filthy agenda! Meanwhile, I found this interesting about the “hate Trump” hoaxes of the left, many of which have been forgotten but NEVER should be forgotten! (List compiled by Pete Hasson of The Daily Caller) ANTI-MUSLIM HATE CRIME IN MICHIGAN TURNS OUT TO BE A HOAX (NOV. 2016) A Muslim woman at the University of Michigan received national attention from national outlets like The Washington Post in November 2016 after she claimed a drunk 20-something man threatened to light her on fire if she didn’t remove her hijab. The university condemned the “hateful attack,” which turned out to be a hoax.

I wonder how many of those perpetrators were ever prosecuted? Knowing the preponderance of liberal judges, I would guess probably not many, or if they were it amounted to little more than a slap of the wrist.

$250M is just spare change in Bezos monthly budget. He should just write a check and make Sandmann go away.

I’ll be the first one to say: Maybe the adult in charge shouldn’t have let them wear MAGA hats to the March For Life. It’s a Pro Life event, not a Trump Rally. That said, they were all horrendously slandered, probably legally so. $250 million is a lot, but these are big media companies. Pay up, jerks.

Surely aiming for a settlement.
Will be interesting if more kids join in. Then it could turn into a very big problem for WAPO and Bezos.
If he wins anything here then it will create havoc for fake news. They’ll have to act much more careful.
