Covington Catholic High School Nick Sandmann’s family has hired high power attorneys to defend him and other students over the libel and slander against them in connection to a mischaracterized confrontation in DC. Sandmann is 16 and goes to the private, all-male prep school in Kentucky. When a bunch of students made their yearly trek to the March for Life in DC, they were accosted by the vicious Black Hebrew Israelites group and by Native American Nathan Phillips.
Attorneys for the boys have now issued a letter to 54 entities who they are considering suing and it’s a who’s who of media outlets, politicians, celebrities, and pundits. They have also released a brutal 15-minute video that tells the real story behind the confrontation. It is damning and should terrify those about to be sued. There is no way this will lose in court. Lin Wood, one of Sandmann’s libel attorneys, produced the video.
Nick Sandmann: The Truth in 15 Minutes
A mob rushed to judgment to wrongfully condemn, threaten & vilify Nick Sandmann based solely on an out-of-context video clip. It only takes 15 minutes to learn the truth. Here it is. https://t.co/QGglyZwiIa

There have been mobs ginned up that have gone after these boys and their families over false allegations. Their lives have been threatened and violent threats have become daily fodder for them. Their personal information has been exposed and their names maligned. The chances of going to an Ivy League school have disappeared overnight all for something these boys did not do. As the media and others rushed to judgment, they destroyed the futures of these boys without getting the facts in hand at all. The truth is completely different from what was originally portrayed.
Nathan Phillips, the Native American man whom the students were accused of mocking, was also disseminating false information that further skewed the narrative. This is a man who falsely claimed to be a Vietnam Vet. He lied about trying to get to the Lincoln Memorial and lied about what the boys said and did. There is incontrovertible proof of all that now.
Some say a 15-minute video is too long to go viral. Will we allow incomplete 30-second video clips to be basis for agenda-driven false accusations & threats against a 16-year old student? Please share the full truth about what was done to Nick Sandmann. https://t.co/QGglyZwiIa

“On Saturday, one of Sandmann’s attorneys, high-profile lawyer L. Lin Wood, published a 14-minute video highlighting the narrative arc of the controversy, beginning with the media’s rush to judgment and ending with the vindication of Sandmann and his classmates.
“[Two] weeks ago, the mainstream media, politicians, church officials, commentators, & celebrities rushed to judgment to wrongfully condemn, threaten, disparage & vilify Nick Sandmann based solely on a few seconds of an out-of-context video clip. It only takes 15 minutes to learn the truth,” Wood wrote in the video’s description.
“What are Sandmann’s attorneys doing?
“On Friday, Sandmann’s team of lawyers took the first step in obtaining justice for the student and his family, sending 54 letters to media organizations, journalists, Hollywood celebrities, and Catholic organizations they say are culpable in defaming Sandmann in their contribution to the media’s initial narrative. Included on the list are the New York Times, the Washington Post, Bill Maher, Alyssa Milano, Jim Carrey, NBC’s Chuck Todd, among dozens of others.
“Todd McMurtry, one of Sandmann’s lawyers, told the Cincinnati Enquirer: “We don’t want this to happen again. We want to teach people a lesson. There was a rush by the media to believe what it wanted to believe versus what actually happened.”‘
Wow this is a brutal video from Nick Sandmann’s attorneys going through all the actual video juxtaposed directly with all the lies spread by Nathan Phillips and the press. https://t.co/nSIsvYfQqh

This video is a must-watch and shows you what really happened that day. “A mob rushed to judgment to wrongfully condemn, threaten & vilify Nick Sandmann based solely on an out-of-context video clip,” Wood tweeted. “It only takes 15 minutes to learn the truth. Here it is.”
These boys, their families, and their attorneys are aggressively going after this as they should. I suggest you get your popcorn ready and snuggle in… this is going to be good.
