Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann plans to sue CNN for more than $250 million over alleged "vicious" and "direct attacks," his lawyer told Fox News. This comes just weeks after the Kentucky teen's legal team filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Washington Post.
The attorney, L. Lin Wood, will discuss his client's latest lawsuit on Fox News Channel's "Life, Liberty & Levin" on Sunday at 10 p.m. EST, Fox News reports.
“CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post,” Wood told Fox News host Mark Levin. "And the dollar figure in the CNN case may be higher than it was in the Washington Post."
The lawsuits against the two news organizations stem from an incident at the Lincoln Memorial that garnered national attention in January.
A shortened viral video shot after the March for Life rally appeared to show Sandmann and other Covington High students blocking the path of a Native American activist, Nathan Phillips. The students, many of whom wore "Make America Great Again" hats, appeared to chant and mock Phillips as he beat a drum and sang.
