REPORT: Lawyer: Covington High student’s lawsuit a ‘message’ for ‘weaponized’ media


An attorney representing a Covington Catholic High School student suing The Washington Post for $250 million told Fox News on Wednesday that the pricey lawsuit “isn’t about the money, it’s about the message.”

Todd McMurtie, the lawyer representing student Nicholas Sandmann, spoke to Todd Starnes about a lawsuit filed Tuesday that “seeks significant damages” from The Post for allegedly targeting his client “just so the media could make the point it wanted to make.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The lawsuit accuses The Post of “using its vast financial resources to enter the bully pulpit by publishing a series of false and defamatory print and online articles … to smear a young boy who was in its view an acceptable casualty in their war against the president.”

“What we hope to accomplish with the lawsuit obviously is to obtain a large verdict,” McMurtie said on “The Todd Starnes Show.” “And the reason we want to obtain a large verdict is so that things that things like the things that happened to Nick did not happen to others.”

“Money is the way to inflict enough suffering on, you know, a weaponized publication like The Washington Post, so that that they won’t do it again. And there’s other people — other organizations and media outlets — that have become weaponized against our president.”
