Nick Sandmann’s legal team file $250m lawsuit against Washington Post

The legal team of Nick Sandmann, the student from Covington Catholic school who was vilified in the press after a confrontation with known activist, Nathan Phillips, have announced that they’ve filed suit against the Washington Post for $250m in both punitive and compensatory damages.

The suit was filed in Kentucky and alleges that the Post was guilty of targeting “Nicholas in furtherance of its political agenda was carried out by using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles which effectively provided a worldwide megaphone to Phillips and other anti-Trump individuals and entities to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the President.”

The suit further alleges that “The Post ignored basic journalist standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented, biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump (“the President”) by impugning individuals perceived to be supporters of the President.”

The amount asked for in damages is the same amount that Jeff Bezos paid for the post back in 2013, and it does state in the suit that this amount was requested to “punish, deter, and teach the Post a lesson it will never forget.”
