An attorney for one of the Catholic school students involved in a viral incident with a Native American protester said Nick Sandmann will sue CNN for $250 million.
The Covington Catholic student was featured in the partially clipped videos aired by major national news outlets, says that CNN engaged in "vicious" direct attacks against him, said his lawyer, L. Lin Wood, in a Fox News interview set to air Sunday.
Wood said that CNN botched its coverage of the events during the Kentucky school's trip to Washington, D.C., and says his client, who is also suing the Washington Post for $250 million over its reporting on the same incident, deserves compensation.
“CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals' homes,” Wood said.
