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”).
