Lin Wood Files $275 Million Lawsuit Against FakeNews Enemy-of-the-People CNN

Finish him.

Before the media onslaught, "Nicholas Sandmann was a 16-year-old man who had a perfect reputation: he was loved by his parents, respected at his school, and had many good friends at Covington Catholic High School. So he was a person that was doing very well in life and due to his strong character, he still is," the lawyer said.

"But nevertheless, his character has now been determined by the lies issued by CNN. So the facts were not first, the lies were," McMurtry added.

Fox News played a clip of the video that CNN spread at 7 a.m. the day after the incident.

"Sending out a short snippet like that at 7 a.m. after the event happens is totally irresponsible, completely negligent, and in our view subject to punitive damages," the lawyer said. "They did this without any reasonable investigation. They took something straight off Twitter that had been, in essence, manipulated so that it told one story and they reported it as the truth."

Before filing the lawsuit, Sandmann's lawyers gave CNN an opportunity to retract. "They did not retract within the timeline provided for by Kentucky law. So their opportunity to retract is now passed. So we will proceed for our lawsuit for both compensatory and punitive damages."

Todd McMurtry said he expects to file a new lawsuit every few weeks, and that he's looking closely at NBC, AP, HBO (due to Bill Maher), and even Kathy Griffin, for calling for a doxxing of innocent boys.

Kathy Griffin looks like a homeless man who ran out of money halfway through his sex reassignment surgery so I don't know how much blood they can get from that particular fake-vagina Carrot-Top stone. But I'd like to find out.

46 Before filing the lawsuit, Sandmann's lawyers gave CNN an opportunity to retract.


Not just CNN, all of the prospective targets.

I think it was on a Wednesday. He said if you print (broadcast) a full and complete retraction and apology by close of business Friday I will not sue the everloving shit out of you.

I may have paraphrased.

But they didn't. None of them did. And we're only a little over half a billion in damages claimed against the first two of easily fifty targets.

They could have retracted and apologized, but obviously decided Wood was bluffing.

161 The typical defense and dismissing argument about libel suits are that the objects of "libel" are public figures and have to be expected to accept harsh criticism from a free press.

Nicholas Sandman and the rest of the boys from Covington are not and were not public figures.

This was libel with malice. And they were given a chance to retract.

It will likely take years, and doubtless there is the chance that some pin head judge will dismiss cases just to show he's a powerful pinhead judge.

But this all should go forward, and I hope that the lawyers are very successful in recovering YUGE amounts of money from the indicted.

Actually, I would have to respectfully disagree. A court imposing damage awards on a speaker in a civil case is considered state action, so the First Amendment is always in play in a defamation case. (The New York Times isn't a state actor either, but in New York Times v. Sullivan, the Supreme Court stepped in and limited the power of a court to punish speech against "public figures" on First Amendment grounds.)

So there.

I'm not an atty, but after listening to Lin Wood's calm determined explanation of what is his lawsuit filing's purpose and his rationale behind them, I'm betting on Wood. The damage purposefully done to a minor for a political purpose. As he told Levin, Nicholas Sandmann is simply collateral damage to the media. Their real target is Pres. Trump, and they will use anyone and anything to try to damage him.

I was also impressed with his take down the next day of Judge Nap, who according to Wood , shouldn't be on TV if he doesn't know the law, LOL. Wood actually cited the specific statutes, etc. that are in effect here. This is Wood's specialty, and his experience. He's not just some random lawyer who is being financed by a SJW group. He's been doing this type of defense for a long time, with well known clients.

Sure, it doesn't apply to businesses *per se*, but it is a recognized principle of our American society, so these cocks reveal that inasmuch as they're not believing in free speech as a broad principle, they are not Americans.

Yeah, we'll get the government to empower groups with controls over every kind of commons, grant them advantages over their competitors and protections from the law in that capacity, then nudge and wink to encourage them to defraud their captive bases on behalf of what government actors would *like to* censor... but their hands are merely at the machinery, not in the dirt itself.

I care about it very much. It provides a peek at the engine that drives elitism in this country, and may just spark some reforms that will introduce more transparency to college admissions. With luck, it'll put a crimp on the affirmative action crap (for example, by making admissions much more objective, and less subjective).

Believe it or not, there's actually a doctrine under which a private person like Sandmann can be deemed an "involuntary public figure" so that the "actual malice" standard of New York Times v. Sullivan can be applied. (Defamation defendants in a media case are always claiming that the plaintiff is an involuntary public figure if he or she is not an actual celebrity.)

The cases that apply this label to a private plaintiff are extremely rare and I don't remember what elements have to be present for it to fit. I do have a vague recollection that there was a big fight in the Richard Jewell case over whether he qualified for the title.

It's so rich for drama, and Herbert touches on it briefly from time to time, but often only in crass ways (like when someone demands to know if he still has a dick).

The thing was, Herbert seemed to think of himself more as a political theorist than a novelist. Listening to his son wax on about how Frank could have become president seems to indicate so as well.

That is why I loathe Sullivan as applied.

I doubt highly that the involuntary public figure approach will work here because the defamation itself made him a public figure.

It is also different when you are dealing with minors because the law grants additional protections to minors.

Lin Wood knows his stuff. To be fair, this is all tainted by how much I detest Sullivan as applied and thus I want there to be a case like this that lets Justice Thomas throatpunch Sullivan as it deserves.

As Calm Mentor notes above, SCOTUS has ruled that your defamation cannot be the predicate act that makes the defamed a public figure. And like I noted, Lin Wood says he believes he can satisfy the actual malice standard, in any event.

but it was not a good movie. It was like a team that plays a pretty good game, and then chokes it all away at the end. They never understood the elements that made the first Blade Runner so legendary, they never understood why that one worked. You can't recreate what you don't understand.

458 Ace, I often share some of your funnier take downs with my dad but this one on Kathy Griffin was the best ever. Made my dad laugh and he added you should photoshop her severed head going onto a mans head representing where she ran out of money.

462 Is it illegal for Lin Wood to blare Metallica's "Enter Sandman" over a loud stereo when he walks into the courtroom with his client?



C'mon, you thought about it for just an instant, didn't you?


You thought about it because it is such an epic idea.

466 I always thought a spoof movie based on a mash up of Roadhouse and Dirty Dancing would have killed.

467 The operative phrase there is "16-year-old".

I don't think that that's really relevant. It's an aggravating factor, but I think smearing anyone like that should be actionable.

Arguably, it could do more damage to an adult, who could be fired, lose his house, etc. It could influence Sandmann's applications to college, but by the time he's an adult this will have blown over, and few people will remember him.

Learning new things from The Horde!

There is no possible way that can go wrong!

Remember, everyone, it's the BEST IDEA EVER to Bing terms the Horde uses that you do not know. Best. Idea. Ever.

474 446 Dune is a great book. I think the attempts at making it into a movie fall short because the book has a lot of "thinking" going on. Lots of inside of head being put on paper, but not a lot of dialogue. I haven't read it in a while so my memory may be a bit flawed.
Posted by: Puddleglum at March 13, 2019 05:00 PM (SmRAI)

It mushes 17th century Italian politics with early 20th century Arabism and Eugenics and Predestination and does it brilliantly. That kind of stuff is really hard to get across on a screen.

475 Weird Facebook story: I have the bare minimum on FB necessary for my job. So I commented on someone's page the other day. She is not a friend. A day later I got a message "So and so accepted your friend request."

IOW just commenting generates a friend request! That's BS.

476 I really, really liked Blade Runner 2049.


OK, I'll fight about that.

The first Blade Runner, or you know the first five different re-cuts of the same material, was about what it means to be human. Can the androids maintain a spark of the humanity they were copied from?

2049 starts out with how can you kill your own kind? Oh, they're not my kind they're generation six and I'm generation eight.

Or something like that. It's extremely stupid and I refused to keep going from there even though I was watching it with fanboi Son No. 1.

477 37 False dilemma.

if you research and buy correctly, one can do both.
It's not truly a dilemma just curious for the most part the only guns I'm concerned about our my 30-06. I have more than several 22s for which I have let's to say considerable inventory My Philosophy is that even a relatively untrained person can shoot a 22 effectively I have gone both routes with my 30 ought 6 feel the need to update my inventory by about 500 rounds buying in bulk does happen to get mrs. Sock monkeys attention and I receive a very hard to read eye roll if I buy several boxes of 20 every trip into town she doesn't even notice

insurance company attorneys to see how high they will go to settle.

482 Student-athletes from a group of colleges in upstate New York may be at a disadvantage at this months NCAA Division III Swimming Championship in North Carolina because theyll have to stay in another state, thanks to an executive order by Governor Andrew Cuomo enacted in 2016.

The irony is that the order initially was in response to North Carolina's transgender bathroom ban, which was repealed in 2017. However, Cuomos order remains in place and the athletes still have to stay elsewhere

THIS is why left wings are such worthless POSs
Posted by: Nevergiveup at March 13, 2019 05:00 PM (Y+V3r)

This still pisses me off.

Back in the day the NCAA said no events in NC.

Yet Carolina was in March Madness. And UNC-W and UNC-C and NC State, IIRC. All state schools.

She still has marrow, right? Wring her skeleton dry.

Same goes for the rest of the pit of vipers. Go, lawfare, go!
