Covington Kid’s Attorneys Send Letters To These 54 Entities For Possible Lawsuits

0 1,453

Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family have retained legal counsel… the high-powered kind and they have a list of entities that libeled and slandered Sandmann and others that they are serving notice to. The attorneys sent letters to over 50 entities ranging from Democratic politicians to celebrities to media figures.

“The legal counsel representing Nick and his family, Todd McMurtry and experienced libel and defamation lawyer L. Lin Wood of Atlanta, have said they will seek justice for the harm allegedly done to the teen,” The Enquirer reported. “McMurtry is with the law firm of Hemmer Defrank Wessels and has practiced law in Greater Cincinnati since 1991. He said a team of seven lawyers has been working full-time to review the media accounts of what happened.”

When the smearing of Sandmann and other students started on January 19th, 2019 after an incident where they were at the March for Life rally in DC and were accosted by Native American Nathan Phillips as well as the Black Hebrew Israelites, attorneys warned they were scouring social media for libelous content. The students were falsely portrayed as bullies and racists when they were the actual victims in the incident.

The Enquirer added: “This week they have prepared documentation preservation letters addressed to organizations and individuals they believe may have defamed or libeled Nick with false reporting.”

“They know they crossed the line,” McMurtry said. “Do they want 12 people in Kentucky to decide their fate? I don’t think so.” In other words, settle or get dragged through the courts and the media (those not being sued). After all, these people have ruined the chances of an Ivy League education for these boys by lying about them. They should have to pay for that.

Via The Daily Wire, here are those who received letters:

Concerning the viral clip that was selectively edited and started this whole mess, the Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti reported:

“The three-minute video was posted online by a group of Native American protesters who claimed they were harassed and intimidated by a group of Covington Catholic High School students waiting for their bus near the Lincoln Memorial. The video is heavily clipped at the beginning and end, and shows only an apparent “confrontation” between a protester named Nathan Phillips and a Make America Great Again-hat wearing teen. …

“Saturday night, a two-hour long, full video of the confrontation became widely available on social media, and that video shows a very different interaction than the one initially portrayed. The video, taken from the point of view of a second group of protesters who witnessed the interaction, shows that Phillips approached the teens — not the other way around, as Phillips claims — and that the teens were relatively peaceful during the incident, laughing and clapping along with Phillips’ drumming, and occasionally asking questions like, “what is going on here?”‘

Sandmann’s attorneys mean business here and I am gladdened to see them pursue the case.

Chicks on the Right posted this:

“L. Lin Wood ― the high-profile attorney of MAGA hat-wearing teen Nick Sandmann ― promises that justice will be served for his teen client, who was viciously smeared by the media over an encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips.

“Wood’s colleague, Todd V. McMurtry, said Sandmann’s legal team sent out its first round of document preservation letters to several national media outlets. “We have put them on notice!” he warned.”

Wood and McMurtry take on very high-profile cases and they don’t lose. If I were on their list, I would be very worried right about now. The media, celebrities, and polititicians put the lives of these kids and their families in danger. There were bomb threats as well. They called for their personal information to be exposed and for them to be bodily harmed… in some cases, killed. All because some of the boys were wearing MAGA hats which allowed the left to falsely tie them to President Trump and their hatred for him.

“We will be relentless in our pursuit of justice for Nick. This is not a threat ― this is a fact,” Wood told Big League Politics. Looks like he’s a man of his word.
