They're spending money on litigation that they could be using to bribe a college admissions officer to let little Nick into a decent college.  Otherwise it's community college for him.

FTFA: The Legal Argument in Nicholas Sandmann's Defamation Lawsuits Is Basically "MAGA"

So it's essentially one big dogwhistle.

He's a lousy little punk.  Stems from upbringing.  His parents are probably asswads, too.

You FARK heathens don't seem to understand that this young man and his family have the support of President Trump... along with countless fellow Christian believers.
Even as I post, all over Louisiana thousands of Catholics are praying to Jared Leto on his behalf.

His folks are going to milk this for all it's worth. They get shut down by a judge, that's a Kickstarter campaign to recoup their "legal costs" and a bit of talking head/guest speaker cash. They go through, and lose, they'll really get aggressive with the Kickstarter/GoFundMe campaign to find rubes to fleece. Plus there's the Perpetual Victim Roulette of talk shows and conventions. It's not about winning, it's about Being Kept Down by The Libs.

He can't file anything, as a minor. This is purely his folks' looking to get some scratch off their kid's sh*tty actions. Since they were responsible for creating such a little git in the first place, I suppose that's kind of fair at least...

Is this the thread where the two morons from the other day tell us CNN is going to be put out of business like Gawker? I sure hope so. Slapping them around is always fun and I have a few slow hours.

It's nearly impossible to win these.

On the other hand, by playing up the political differences, they might be trying to show actual malice on the part of CNN.

CNN will probably appeal to institutional incompetence, which is a really strong defense for them.

We don't have judges anymore. We have conservative activists pretending to be judges. So it will probably work.

You've got to vote. You've got to vote every election. And you've got to vote straight ticket Democrat.

It's just that simple.
 
2019-03-14 09:19:42 AM  
The attorney is L. Lin Wood. He represented Richard Jewel.
I agree the kid should not have received death threats. I don't know when we decided it was okay to murder or threaten to murder teenagers in this country, but it needs to stop.
I disagree with the notion that the kid deserves a cash pay out from the news media. He was in a public place.. His actions were reported in good faith. The long form video does not alter the perception of him as much as he thinks it does. I wonder if the kid's parents are pushing him into this suit in the hopes of cashing in?

Like his hero, he wants free millions but his dad isn't wealthy enough. Let's see how many bankruptcies he can go through.

So, let's get this straight ... News organizations make an unknown 16 year old kid the subject of of ire for people like the posters here.  People who know absolutely nothing about said 16 year old  but think they are justified calling him anything that comes into your sick minds.

He wins exactly because of you...

The attorney is known for taking on high profile clients on the right.  He is either doing it pro bono for stigginit and knows it won't pass sniff test but gets him in the spotlight, expects to get paid if they win, or is getting funded by outside people like the hulk Hogan case.  Could be a combined all 3.

Hogan still loses if Gawker could have resisted shooting themselves in the head. Their defense was weaponized stupidity.

If anyone should be sued, it's the Twitterer who started all this in the first place. I don't see HER mentioned in the suit anywhere, although the case could probably be dismissed immediately for failure to join an indespensible party.

Proving this is nothing more than a cash grab.

Q314: When did the website that celebrates the absurdity of fake and deliberately misleading news become a defender of fake and deliberately misleading news?


Deliberately misleading?  They sure jumped the gun before the story was out, basically every fox news story, but that's not deliberately misleading that's just jumping on a developing story before the facts are in.

Unlike other "news" outlets previously mentioned, they actually stated they were wrong and retracted.  You know how journalists are supposed to do it.

It's definitely not a bright spot on them, but it's how news has become in this day in age where Twitter videos become news before actual news outlets can pick the story up and they either have to react to what little info is available in the 280 characters in said tweet that is "trending" or die because they're the only ones not covering it.

I've heard of Bill Maher, but I've never seen his show. I don't think I've even seen a clip with him in it. Then I find myself confused about whether I am liberal. At Christmas, family informed that I was wildly liberal. Last week, a coworker told me I was too conservative. At my place of worship, whether I am deemed liberal or conservative seems to depend on which sub-group I am with. I was once told some of my ideas are so different that it's hard to tell where they would fit on the political spectrum.
