The lawyer who is representing Nick Sandmann, one of the children who was brutally mocked, bullied, and smeared when he stood his ground and smiled, as a Native American activist beat a drum in his face, is firing back at the media, politicians, and celebrities who libeled his client.
Fox News reported that more than 50 media organizations, celebrities and politicians were sent letters from lawyers representing the Covington Catholic High School student seen in a controversial viral video — the first step in a possible libel and defamation lawsuit — and the teen’s legal team also released a 15-minute video that they say shows “the truth” about his interactions at last month’s March For Life.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., actors Alyssa Milano and Jim Carey, media organizations CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post and the Diocese of Covington were among the dozens recently sent preservation letters, the text of which advised the parties not to destroy any documents in connection with the case.
The Cincinnati Enquirer first reported on Friday the initial list of organizations, and attorney Todd McMurtry confirmed to Fox News on Monday that more organizations or individuals could also receive letters.
“It’s an enormous pool of possible defendants,” he said, adding only one party had responded to the letter, though he did not say which.
In addition to the lawsuits, attorney L. Lin Wood has released a 15-minute viral video explaining the truth about what his client has faced.
