Skip to comments.Here Are the 50 Celebs, Reporters, & Others Covington Kidsí Lawyers Just Officially Targeted
Posted on 02/04/2019 3:07:47 PM PST by Texas Fossil
In the wake of a short, out-of-context video put up on Twitter about a confrontation after the Jan. 18 March for Life, pretty much everyone in the media and politics decided to condemn a group of minors from Covington Catholic High School.
And then the facts started coming in.
According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, over 50 individuals who went after the Covington kids and didnt retract their statements will potentially find themselves in court after lawyers for the most visible of the students sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.
The letter from lawyers representing high school junior Nick Sandmann were sent to individuals/organizations ranging from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera, David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.
The legal counsel representing Nick and his family, Todd McMurtry and experienced libel/defamation lawyer L. Lin Wood of Atlanta, have said they will seek justice for the harm allegedly done to the teen, the paper reported.
Others who will likely be included in the suit will be NBCs Chuck Todd, Newsweek writer/full-time weirdo Kurt Eichenwald, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, MSNBC host Joy Reid and actor/newly minted socialist Jim Carrey.
HBO host Bill Maher, who called Sandmann a little p***k who made a d*** move at any age, is also among the possible targets.
They know they crossed the line, McMurtry told the Enquirer. Do they want 12 people in Kentucky to decide their fate? I dont think so.

This could be a billion dollar lawsuit by the end. The number of deep pocket defendants, multiplied by their arrogance, adjudicated in a state unimpressed by lying New York journalists and Hollywood fools, could create a perfect storm for the plaintiff.
Nail those bastards
Especially Tramp Milano and Maher. Wipe that smirk off his ugly azz face
And you can bet they will bring the charges in Kentucky. Imagine what a local jury will feel about this.
Better start popping that pop corn - it’s gonna be a long hot summer - for the MSM-Hollywood ass wipes.
I’d give a year’s pay just to see Maher financially ruined.

I hope you are right. I have a LOT of popcorn on hand.
Nah. Punish the media. They’re the ones who deserve the spanking.
The other side will say that they stopped being “private citizens” when they decided to attend and participate in a public demonstration on public property.
That’s a great comment from James Woods.
The fact that it’s the Kentucky court system and not some crackpot federal court is a big deal.
As part of the settlement, they should agree to wear a drum over their head and let Nick Sandmann beat on it with a drumstick at least for ten minutes each. Plus pay big bucks to Nick Sandmann. Make it hurt so they won't do it again (paying cash is too easy on them).
I hope they crucify the Dioceses that are involved in this - particularly that flaming a-hole of a Bishop, LGBT-supporter, Roger Joseph Foys. That sodomite-predator-enabling ass clown should be defrocked.
Under that “theory” any American citizen, who ever sent a letter or e-mail to their state or federal representative, or ever attended a public hearing to give testimony, is no longer a private citizen. That is perhaps the most flimsiest of legal theories I have ever come across.

They missed Chelsea Handler.
Samantha C***’s handlers wisely advised HER to STFU.
Settlements allow the bullies to “apologize” without admitting any guilt.
Yeah, almost as flimsy as saying Donald Trump's joke about "maybe the Russians can find Hillary's missing e-mails" was a legally actionable indication of collusion between President Trump and Vladimir Putin.
Fact is, it's already been used, in a way. Protestors at George Mason University tried went to court to sue conservative students who videoed them, and subsequently posted those videos on line.
The protestors claimed that their right to privacy was violated by the students who posted the videos, but the judge dismissed the case by pointing out the obvious: that the protestors chose to waive their privacy rights when they decided to undertake a protest in a public space.
This situation is obviously quite different, but do you really think that will stop left-wing activists from using that argument in court?
They will learn that there is as thorn in that blanket that doesn't protect them from slander and threats of violence that violate the law.
Of course, some liberal judge will let them off the hook eventually but it will be entertaining to watch them squirm.
What about twatter for publishing the woodchipping tweet
