Former Covington Catholic Student Nick Sandmann Loses Defamation Cases Against CBS, NY Times, ABC, and Others After Jimmy Carter Judge Tosses the Lawsuits

A Jimmy Carter judge tossed Nick Sandmann’s lawsuits against several media companies including CBS, The New York Times, ABC and others.

Covington Catholic teen Nicholas Sandmann settled with NBC in December.

Sandmann’s lawyers filed a $800 million lawsuit against CNN, WaPo and NBC Universal after the outlets used a selectively edited video to make Nick Sandmann and his fellow Covington friends look like they harassed Nathan Phillips, a Native American who attended the Indigenous Peoples March in DC in 2019.

Sandmann filed a $275 million lawsuit against NBC-Universal and MSNBC and settled for an undisclosed amount of money.

“At this time I would like to release that NBC and I have reached a settlement. The terms are confidential.” Nick Sandmann said Friday evening in tweet.

Sandmann hit WaPo with a $250 million lawsuit.

The lawsuit against WaPo claims that the paper “vilified” the student that was seen in a viral video being confronted by far-left activist Nathan Phillips because of the fact that he is white.

But this week a Carter judge tossed the latest lawsuits.

Law and Crime reported:

After years of politically charged litigation, former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann has lost a round of high-profile defamation lawsuits against five mainstream media companies at the summary judgment stage. That’s according to court dockets and an opinion and order signed by a federal judge in the Eastern District of Kentucky on Tuesday.

Sandmann’s cases against ABC News, Rolling Stone magazine, CBS News, newspaper and television station owner Gannett, and The New York Times are now officially listed as “terminated” on the court record.

Sandmann sued the five organizations in question — and a few others, including CNN and NBC — on March 2, 2020. The lawsuits alleged that various articles and broadcasts defamed Sandmann by characterizing his actions toward Nathan Phillips, a Native American activist, on Jan. 18, 2019 in Washington, D.C., as nefarious.
