Federal Judge Reopens Covington Student’s Lawsuit Against The Washington Post

A federal judge has decided that the lawsuit launched by Nicholas Sandmann may enter the discovery phase.

This is good news.

Sandmann was singled out by members of the media who truly seemed like they were trying to destroy the boy’s life because he was wearing a MAGA hat.

The new ruling, by District Judge William O. Bertelsman, is based on an amended complaint filed by Sandmann’s legal team. The decision permitted Sandmann to obtain documents from The Post during an upcoming discovery process, as his lawyers have sought to argue that the paper negligently covered Sandmann’s interactions with a Native American man, Nathan Phillips, while the student wore a red “Make America Great Again” hat and stood outside the Lincoln Memorial in January.

“The ruling bodes well for the NBC and CNN cases, as well,” Todd V. McMurtry, one of the lawyers for the Sandmann family, tweeted, referring to other outstanding lawsuits concerning those outlets’ coverage of the episode.

The Post did not immediately comment.

This could end badly for the Washington Post and other media outlets.

Those kids deserve justice.
