Just saw the video clip confirming this lawsuit on The Story with Martha MacCallum on Fox Nation. You can check out the video clip (2nd in line under Latest Videos) in the link below:
www.foxnews.com...

Co-counsel for Nick Sandmann, Todd McMurtry, also told Martha that he's going after HBO for the conduct of Bill Mahar and obnoxious, loser comic, Kathy Griffin. What's the current line on Griffin saving face with a retraction?


The lawsuit, which was filed just after 3 p.m. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, claims that CNN has "elevated false, heinous accusations of racist conduct" against Sandmann and failed to adhere to "well-established journalistic standards and ethics."

I feel sorry for whatever judge has to hear the case against kathy.

She has to be one of the most obnoxious people(visually and audibly), I don't know if I would be able to put up with that.

CNN hasn’t adhered to “well established journalistic standards or ethics” for decades.
At least not since they have had their lips firmly planted on Democrat’s asses.

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of Snow White

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon's fire
And of things that will bite, Yeah!

Is it because CNN can bribe the judge with money?

Did the attorney guarantee that he will NOT "settle" out of court with CNN? There was concern last week that he might do that. I want to see domestic terrorist CNN found guilty in a court of law.

Watching a bit, the following can be stated:

This is going to be an interesting case and one that will have consequence if the person wins.

When bringing up a defamation of character claim in court there are three things that are going to have to be proven, any failure on any will result in a losing of the case:
1) What was said or written against the person was false.
2) The person who wrote or spoke the falsehoods against you did it with the intention of doing harm.
3) The person must prove that harm actually occurred.


So this kid is going to have to prove that there was actual harm done to him, usually in the way of either a ruining of a business, or loss of money.

The far hardest part is that they will also have to show in court that the intention was to ruin this child life, in the reporting of the news.

And there will be back and forth, and finally a judge will have to rule.

The question is what if the kid loses then what?

I respectfully disagree. All that Sandmann's attorneys have to prove, is that their client's reputation was ruined by the media's false and misleading statements. The media did in fact portray this kid as a racist, which would in fact, be detrimental to this kid's future. Many on the Left still believe that Sandmann was in the wrong, despite the video evidence. Also, don't forget, that many Hollyweird celebrities, including Kathy Griffin, encouraged a twitter mob to dox Sandmann, which put him in real danger. Sandmann and his family received death threats, as well as other students and families, who also received threats and harassment thanks to the bogus media claims, as well as hurtful statements made by a few celebrities, like Griffin.

I could write a really long response to this, but it's late, so I'll keep it short.

Remember, civil law is different than criminal law in that it only requires a preponderance of evidence, not proof beyond a reasonable doubt (...remember OJ?). So, to this end, your points #1 and #2 are pretty much a slam dunk.
1. There's no question the statements by CNN were false.
2. The "person" (network in this case) was clearly bent on drawing a connection between a child, MAGA (i.e. Trump) and anti-abortion positions. They wanted to make an example of him as the pinnacle of their hatred of the right. In essense...'all Trump supporters are racists, and see, here's even a child who has been indoctrinated into this racism, all in support of right wing anti-abortion ideology. Sandman, like Orangeman = bad!'

Emotional distress and suffering is difficult to disprove, and with the weight of items #1 and #2 above there is a preponderance of evidence which will more than likely sway an unbiased jury to find for your point #3. The larger questions are...

1. Can they find a truly unbiased jury, and...
2. What will the jury award for damages.

I just hope that the people that wanted to punish a child for wearing a MAGA hat get punished and that it hurts worse than a sandpaper glove during a prostate exam.
