Sandmann, family sue CNN for $275M in Covington Catholic controversy

By Nicole Darrah | Fox News

A lawsuit worth $275 million was filed against CNN on Tuesday over the network's alleged "vicious" attack against Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann.

The lawsuit, which was filed just after 3 p.m. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, claims that CNN has "elevated false, heinous accusations of racist conduct" against Sandmann and failed to adhere to "well-established journalistic standards and ethics."



Sandmann's attorney, Todd McMurtry, will appear exclusively on Fox News' "The Story" Tuesday at 7:45 p.m.

Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, became a target for outrage after a video of him standing face-to-face with a Native American man, Nathan Phillips, while wearing a red Make America Great Again hat surfaced in January.

Whatever he gets, the settlement must include public acknowledgement by the media of their duplicity.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

All well and good. Three Cheers.

Now let's see what he ends up with.


I've seen JNJ lose $1.25B in an Alabama jury verdict that only took 3.5 hrs.

And JNJ get it reduced to $7.5M by the State Supreme Court.
