#1 Nicholas Sandmann's Family Makes Major Move Against Media After Being Smeared by Cincinnatus 25.01.2019 16:08


Excellent. Our libel laws are a mess (due to the Supreme Court), but I hope this family strikes and strikes hard.

The family of 16-year-old Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann has hired a high-powered lawyer who specializes in going after media organizations for libel and slander.

WCPO reports that the family has hired L. Lin Wood, whom disgraced former journalist Dan Rather described as the "attorney for the damned," and who is known for "aggressive libel and slander suits against media organizations."

The family made the announcement in a statement released by the Hemmer DeFrank Wessels law firm, The Enquirer reported.
"...Todd McMurtry, the family’s legal counsel, conducted an extensive search to find a nationally-recognized attorney skilled in the fields of libel, defamation, and the First Amendment," the release said.

Wood has a history of representing high profile clients in major cases including the family of JonBenet Ramsey and others.

"Mr. Wood brings an unrivaled record of success in the courtroom, having represented such clients as the family of JonBenet Ramsey, former Rep. Gary Condit and Richard Jewell in lawsuits against the media," McMurtry wrote. "Mr. Wood visited with the family today in northern Kentucky. He is committed to bringing justice to 16-year-old Nick Sandmann and his family. Further announcements should be expected in the next few days."


Sue the bastards for all they have. I doubt a high powered lawyer like this guy is supposed to be would take the case if he didn't have expectations of success. I hope I'm right.
