The Cable News Network (CNN) has reached a settlement with Nick Sandmann, a Covington Catholic High School student who had sued the news outlet saying it defamed him.
The network would not comment on the details of the settlement. Nick's lawyers did not respond to phone calls or emails at the time of this report.
The Sandmann lawsuit against CNN, seeking $275 million, was filed in March and stated: "CNN brought down the full force of its corporate power, influence, and wealth on Nicholas by falsely attacking, vilifying, and bullying him despite the fact that he was a minor child."
Sandmann has also sued NBC and the Washington Post. His lawyers have said they also intend to sue Gannett, which owns The Enquirer.
