The New York Post: Covington student sues Washington Post for $250 million

Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann filed a $250 million defamation lawsuit against the Washington Post on Tuesday, accusing the newspaper of targeting him in “a modern-day form of McCarthyism.”

Attorneys for 16-year-old Sandmann — who was filmed in a viral confrontation with a Native American man in Washington, DC — claim the newspaper led a “mob of bullies which attacked, vilified & threatened” an innocent minor.

“Washington Post recklessly ignored basic journalist standards because it was eager to advance its biased agenda against @realDonaldTrump by impugning individuals perceived to be his supporters,” attorney Lin Wood said in a statement.
