The attorney of former Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann joined Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal team Thursday to begin filing defamation lawsuits.
Todd McMurtry told Fox News he will lead the effort in deciding who Rittenhouse will file lawsuits against for publicly defaming him during his 2021 trial. The attorney estimated there will be a total of 10 to 15 cases against “large defendants.”
“I’ve been hired to head the effort to determine whom to sue, when to sue, where to sue,” McMurtry said. “We’re going to look at everything that’s been said, determine which of those comments are legally actionable and proceed from there.” more
