The Covington student who was maligned by the media is now looking at suing the fake news companies for slander and libel. The Daily Wire reports:
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.
It’s about time that the fake news feel the consequences of their lies.
