Covington Catholic Family Hires Slander And Libel Bulldog To Go After Media

It looks like the main March for Life story that was not about the march or life for that matter is backfiring big time for the mainstream media.

The family of the young man specifically singled out for example making purposes by a Native American activist posing as a Vietnam veteran (he was in the Military, but never saw Vietnam), has hired one of the nation’s leading anti-slander and libel lawyers presumably to make an example of news organizations that told a false narrative and smeared the good name of a kid, his school, and the cause he was in Washington to promote.

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.

Mr. Wood has represented other families in high profile cases where the mainstream media went overboard with coverage. The Ramseys of JonBenet fame, Richard Jewell and others number among his former clients.

“Mr. Wood brings an unrivaled record of success in the courtroom, having represented such clients as the family of JonBenet Ramsey, former Rep. Gary Condit and Richard Jewell in lawsuits against the media,” McMurtry wrote. “Mr. Wood visited with the family today in northern Kentucky. He is committed to bringing justice to 16-year-old Nick Sandmann and his family. Further announcements should be expected in the next few days.”

It certainly looks like this family is not going to give the mainstream media a pass for what they did to a member.
