Settlement reached in Sandmann case against CNN

COVINGTON, Ky. (FOX19) - CNN agreed Tuesday to settle a lawsuit with
Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann.

The amount of the settlement was not made public during a hearing at the
federal courthouse in Covington, Kentucky.

Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN, the Washington Post and
NBC Universal.

Trial dates are still not set for Sandmann’s lawsuit against NBC
Universal and the Washington Post.

The Washington Post suit sought $250 million. A federal judge let a
portion of the suit go forward after The Post filed a motion to dismiss

Sandmann’s attorney, Lin Wood, said, “This case will be tried not one
minute earlier or later than when it is ready.”

The lawsuits were filed following an incident in Jan. 2019 in
Washington, D.C. involving Covington Catholic High School students.
Videos of that incident garnered national attention.

The initial video showed the self-identified Sandmann, now a senior at
CovCath, and Nathan Phillips, an indigenous man who was participating in
the Indigenous Peoples March. Sandmann and his classmates were in D.C.
for the March For Life.

Other videos later surfaced showing different angles of the incident.

Wood said the damages were sought due to “emotional distress Nicholas
and his family suffered." He also said the family had to move from their
home temporarily and that Nicholas was not permitted to attend school
directly after the trip to Washington.

        Yes, We settled with CNN.

A lawsuit is expected to be filed against Phillips, Wood said. He
indicated that lawsuit would seek $5 million, but the judge said that
Phillips does not have as much money as the other defendants.

They also plan to sue Gannett, owners of The Enquirer, according to

He said he will bring that to the judge in the next 60 days.

Wood also said there’s a maximum of 15 defendants.

Attorneys say the money they’re seeking is not designed to compensate
Nick, but to “deter the defendants” from doing the same thing (that
they’re accused of) in the future.
