Nick Sandmann in court for first time in $250M defamation suit against Washington Post

July 2, 2019

COVINGTON – Nick Sandmann, a Covington Catholic student seeking more than three-quarters of $1 billion against several media companies, was in court for one of the pending lawsuits for the first time on Monday.

 

Sandmann sat in a blue suit between his lawyers, L. Lin Wood and Todd McMurtry, as arguments were heard in a federal courtroom in Covington.

 

Nick's first defamation suit was filed against The Washington Post. He seeks $250 million for the paper's coverage of a late-January incident on the Lincoln Memorial in which Sandmann and his classmates encountered a Native American group. 

 

Judge William O. Bertelsman heard from Sandmann's attorneys and those from The Washington Post, which has made a motion to dismiss the allegations against it.  Bertelsman did not rule on the motion in court, saying he will review the arguments and reach a decision in the coming weeks.
