And it starts - Covington

Sandmann lawyer: Letters sent to New York Times, Today Show, 50 others may precede suits
The lawyers representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they have sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.

The list includes 50-plus names of organizations or individuals: from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.

Nick, as well as his school, faced threats from those angered by video showing him, his classmates and Native Americans engaged in a much-debated confrontation. Some of the students wore "Make America Great Again" hats. Some students chanted and performed the tomahawk chop.

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.

Don observes:

I am not a lawyer but it seems as though Sandmann has a good case for libel.

One, what they said about him was untrue. Two, those lies put him in harm's way as there were death threats against him. Three, he is not a public figure. Four, he is a minor. Five, they did damage his reputation.

Great news - the media tried to spin a fake narrative and it backfired. Time to pay the piper.
