The Washington Post is the latest news organization to settle a defamation lawsuit launched by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann over its botched coverage of a viral confrontation with a Native American elder that had portrayed the Kentucky teen as the aggressor.

Nick Sandmann, the Covington student harassed by both Nathan Phillips and the leftist-media, has settled his $250M lawsuit with the Washington Post this morning. Sandmann filed the defamation lawsuit against the Washington Post on February 19, 2019. Today, he turned 18 years old and the Washington Post settled his suit. Nick thanked Todd McMurty and L. Lin Wood for their support in the case.

Sandmann shared the news via Twitter:

The terms of the settlement have yet to be disclosed. Sandmann was also involved in litigation against NBC. CNN recently settled a $275 million lawsuit with Sandmann.

But Nick Sandmann made clear that the fight is not over, stating, “2 down. 6 to go.”

A few months back, Sandmann settled with CNN:

In February 2019, Covington Student Nick Sandmann’s family hired famed lawyer L. Lin Wood to take on the media and individuals who slandered the 16-year-old Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, after a video showing fake Vietnam war veteran Nathan Phillips banging a drum in his face in Washington D.C. went viral.

Wood is famous for winning defamation suits. He’s who you’d want if you were in the shoes of the Sandmann family. They wanted their son’s name cleared and restored to good standing after the media and others blamed him for an incident that happened at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. The media twisted the truth from the beginning, but eventually, several videos proved the students were actually the victims and not the protagonists of the altercation, as previously reported by 100% FED Up.

After almost two years, the now 18-year-old Nick Sandmann and his family are about to receive some compensation for having their lives turned upside down by a hateful, bullying media.
