Covington kid Nick Sandmann’s lawyer: ‘Nathan Phillips will be sued’

American Thinker: One of the most disgusting phony propaganda gambits to discredit Trump supporters is to face the civil justice system, where the truth will come out. Most AT readers already know that a wide array of media and political figures have been put on notice that they will be sued for libel of Nick Sandmann, the parochial school kid who was approached by Indian “elder” Nathan Phillips, who drummed inches from his face. Based on edited video, Sandmann was vilified as the aggressor. But now comes word that in addition to media outlets, writers and politicians, Phillips himself will be sued.  This is important not for the monetary damages at stake, because Phillips shows no signs of having any financial resources, but because he will be placed under oath and questioned, where he will have to face videotape evidence of his behavior, contrasted with what he has said to the media. Steve Jalsevac reports in Life Site News:

One of the attorneys representing Covington High School student Nick Sandmann and his parents confirmed to LifeSiteNews that Native American activist Nathan Phillips, and some of the others who have received notices from the attorneys, “will be sued.”

Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based lawyer, told LifeSite yesterday that Phillips’ “lies and false accusations” against Sandmann and the other Covington students are “well documented.”

He also said they would be filing the first round of lawsuits “within two weeks.”

Getting Phillips on the record, facing perjury penalties if his testimony is contradicted by the video, will be of inestimable value in suing the media. He would be wise to consider apologizing if he has any assets at all that he might wish to protect from a monetary judgment. Because the lawyers choose the order in which to sue, they can get this on the record before proceeding with other targets, a group which is growing in number:  read more

  1. Brad – the guy might be broke as a joke, but that doesn’t prevent suing him and getting a judgement.
    Then all those touchy-feely Hollywood who say they’ll “stand with him” can all kick in for his obligation.

    Of course that’s when he’ll find out that they only wanted to “stand with him” for a picture in front of the cigar store…

  2. Bad_Brad – Doesn’t matter if he’s broke or not. They’re going to make him radioactive enough so that no one will ever interview him or allow him to crash their protest out of fear of lawsuits. I think cutting off his attention would hurt worse than taking his cash. But still, they should take some of that, too. lol

  3. I have been around a heck of a lot of Native American drumming, I’ve never seen any adult pound a drum in anyone else’s face ever.

  4. Good luck getting him off the Rez for deposition or anything else for that matter.
    Sovereign Nation.
    Unless you have a local LEO who knows where he is and has his deputies watch the border towns you will never get him. Since he isn’t charged with a crime no LEO has any reason to waste resources. Plus the locals will work very hard to hide and protect him.

    So as much as it bugs me there will never be a time when he sits on any witness stand or is deposed for a trial. That is a fact you can take to the bank.
