The attorney representing former Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann in his defamation lawsuits against media organizations that smeared him last year announced on Thursday that four news organizations filed motions to dismiss the lawsuits and that all four requests were denied.

Attorney Lin Wood wrote on Twitter: “Motions to Dismiss @N1ckSandmann defamation lawsuits filed in KY federal court against NY Times, Rolling Stone, ABC, & CBS were just DENIED. NBC motion has previously been DENIED. Gannett motion was briefed on different time schedule & a DENIAL is expected in next few weeks.”

That’s great! Right?

Legalese trips me up sometimes :)

It means that the lawsuit against these 4 ghastly creatures can move forward.

Hmmm... I wonder if the Biden campaign has a similar motion being drafted up. They may need it with their defamation of Kyle Rittenhouse and Lin Wood’s upcoming lawsuit against them.

Has anyone settled yet?

If they did it was probably for an undisclosed amount.

But good for him.

Sad part is my brother’s a lawyer.

But being the brother of a surgeon doesn’t mean you can operate :)

Within a few hours, here on FR, we saw exactly what happened to Nick but the media continued to lie for weeks.

Wood vs Biden should get interesting.

Kyle Rittenhouse deserves to get his name cleared too.

Joe are those footsteps getting louder. Can you hear Lin Wood now? Chris Wallace ain’t gonna save you. You had it all line up. But this ain’t the stinkin 1990.

These Media hacks will either need to work out a settlement or prepare
for trial. Go Sandman. Go Lin Wood. Stick it to them hard!

It just wouldn’t be fair to CNN to dismiss these lawsuits! :)
