Nick Sandmann’s Lawyer Says CNN Violated Agreement, Threatens New Lawsuit To Get Truth To Public

Nick Sandmann’s lawyer just publicly accused CNN of breaching their confidentiality agreement with Nick after settling a $250M lawsuit with the teen.

Lin Wood not only said Brian Stelter and others violated the agreement to not comment on the size of the settlement, but he also threatened more actions to come. The retweet suggested that Nick received just a small settlement known as a nuisance value settlement.

“This retweet by @brianstelter may have cost him his job at @CNN. It is called breach of confidentiality agreement. Brian Stelter is a liar. I know how to deal with liars,” Wood said.


From The Washington Examiner:

The Washington Post settled a defamation lawsuit with a Covington Catholic High School student who was the subject of controversial media coverage in 2019 because of a misleading video clip.

Nicholas Sandmann, 18, who was the subject of a viral altercation between his classmates and a Native American man, announced the resolution to his lawsuit against the news outlet on Friday. Sandmann’s family sought at least $250 million in damages for the paper’s reporting that portrayed the MAGA hat-wearing teenager as a racist for smiling in the face of Native American activist Nathan Phillips.

“On 2/19/19, I filed $250M defamation lawsuit against Washington Post. Today, I turned 18 & WaPo settled my lawsuit. Thanks to [Todd McMurtry] & [Lin Wood] for their advocacy. Thanks to my family & millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me. I still have more to do,” he shared on Twitter. “We have settled with WAPO and CNN. The fight isn’t over. 2 down. 6 to go. Don’t hold your breath [Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey].”

“We are pleased that we have been able to reach a mutually agreeable resolution of the remaining claims in this lawsuit,” Kris Coratti, a spokeswoman for the Washington Post, told the Washington Examiner.
