Nick Sandmann’s lawyer: ‘Nathan Phillips will be sued’
https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/coving...d-of-lawsu

Quote:One of the attorneys representing Covington High School student Nick Sandmann and his parents confirmed to LifeSiteNews that Native American activist Nathan Phillips, and some of the others who have received notices from the attorneys, “will be sued.”

Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based lawyer, told LifeSite yesterday that Phillips’ “lies and false accusations” against Sandmann and the other Covington students are “well documented.”

He also said they would be filing the first round of lawsuits "within two weeks." Todd V. McMurtry, a Ft. Mitchell, Ky attorney, is also representing Sandmann and his parents. Doug Schloemer, a Ft. Mitchell, Ky attorney, represents a number of other students and Robert Barnes, a California attorney, is also representing families and students of Covington High School.

The legal action by Sandmann’s attorneys is ramping up after notices demanding preservation of evidence for possible slander litigation were recently sent out to more than 50 media, dioceses, and celebrities.

Wood told LifeSite that the list of recipients of the notices “continues to grow in number” and that the legal team is “in the process of sending formal written retraction demands in conformity with statutes in states in which litigation may be filed.” They expect to advance to the next stage and “file the first round of civil lawsuits within the next two weeks.”

What type of money can they collect? How can you estimate damages on a HS kid who is not gaining or losing any business/professional value as a result of this?

I buy that this was defamation, but unless the lawyer is doing this pro bono then I don't see the juice.

Against news organizations... who knows. They've effectively harmed his reputation for his entire life. That's something he will always have following him. A good lawyer will talk focus on that point. He's not even an adult and Major Media Companies attacked him. I assume most will settle out of court and try to avoid a judgement against them.

Because that will set a VERY public precedent, that Im sure they'd rather avoid.

It only makes the SCOTUS if a party in this case requests there to be legal review of the proceedings and there are no appeals as a matter of right.

SCOTUS may also hasten this process if this becomes a manner of constitutional law. I'm not sure what is exactly "new" in this situation that isn't clearly explained on the books as-is.

The handling of the raw material was not done in the highest of journalistic standards, so perhaps consideration of the line between "Freedom of Press" and "slander and libel" may be necessary now that we are in 2019.

XACLY!

times are changing quicker than lickety-split.....

I easily devote my time to drive it to that forum if I'm a lawyer...

win on those grounds, and you're the new master in legalese....

And he's had death threats. Its about as big a value for this type of case you could come up with.

I think you should be banned for spreading lies. Oh, and for being an idiot who doesn't comprehend what he see's even when it's right in his face. See, I choose to view it as the nervous reaction of a scared kid when confronted with a scary looking adult getting right in his face looking creepy. You appear to be OK with that though. To think I used to defend you.

RE: Nick Sandmann’s lawyer: ‘Nathan Phillips will be sued’
The area of the country Sandman lives in (Greater Cincinnati) and where his legal action will move forward is very much in Sandman's corner. We are appalled by what happened to him and his Cov Cath classmates. His legal action will not be thrown out.

Shouldn't they be suing CNN? I missed how Phillips defamed Sandmann.

I'm pretty sure that Phillips lied on TV about what happened at the event, blaming the Catholic kids for instigating things, which didn't happen.

Phillips on the other hand did appear that he was trying to instigate something himself when he walked right up to Sandmann, got in his face chanting, and was constantly beating his tom-tom right next to Sandmann's head. It was an aggressive and bullying type of act. Not saying that is why he would be sued. Just pointing out his hypocrisy.

Lost in all of this is the Black activist group that was shouting hateful, racist, and sexual epithets at the Covington Catholic boys - who were just standing there peacefully waiting for a bus, and pretty much no one is making a big deal about that.

I just don't see where Sandmann is going to be able to claim damages from Phillips. They both have there version of how it happened and if you interview 100 people that were there you'll probably get a 100 different versions. Now there might be a case against CNN (or other news outlets), I just don't see the benefit of going after Philips.

RE: Nick Sandmann’s lawyer: ‘Nathan Phillips will be sued’
Sandman can sue for libel. Whether he wins would be up to a judge/jury.

Key evidence would be the extended video and the interpretation by the judge/jury as to which party is telling the truth or if there is room for both parties' interpretations being the truth as they see it.

Phillips has lied before and been caught in falsehoods. He also has a proven history as an instigator agitator. Guarantee both past lies and his past attempts to agitate will be presented as evidence towards his credibility.

They have it on tape. Phillips clearly lied repeatedly about what happened.

He said the boys “surrounded him” and that he felt threatened. Further, it was staged by he and his “videographers”. One is clearly heard saying “ Ok, we got what we wanted”, or ok we got plenty, something along those lines.

He was clearly trying to provoke them, so he once again took “ point”.

That and he’s a lying dicktard, these are KIDS. Messy his life up a bit, maybe next time he sees the error of his ways.
