Here Are the 50 Celebs, Reporters & Others the Covington Kids’ Lawyers Just Officially Targeted

Sue the pants off of all of these cretins. Make it hurt!

According to the Cincinnati Enquirer, over 50 individuals who went after the Covington kids and didn’t retract their statements will potentially find themselves in court after lawyers for the most visible of the students “sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.”

The letter from lawyers representing high school junior Nick Sandmann were sent to individuals and organizations ranging “from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.”

“The legal counsel representing Nick and his family, Todd McMurtry and experienced libel and defamation lawyer L. Lin Wood of Atlanta, have said they will seek justice for the harm allegedly done to the teen,” the paper reported.

Others who will likely be included in the suit will be NBC’s Chuck Todd, Newsweek writer/full-time weirdo Kurt Eichenwald, Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, MSNBC host Joy Reid and actor/newly minted socialist Jim Carrey.

HBO host Bill Maher, who called Sandmann a “little pr—” who made a “d— move at any age,” is also among the possible targets.

“They know they crossed the line,” McMurtry told the Enquirer. “Do they want 12 people in Kentucky to decide their fate? I don’t think so.”

He added that those on the list will “raise legal defenses and challenges that we’ll have to overcome, but that’s the way it goes.”

While there’s generally a high bar for libel lawsuits in the United States, attorney Robert Barnes, who’s representing some of the students from Covington, previously told Fox News there’s a “unique exception” in this case.

“When there is a defamation and libel of private citizens, particularly minors, then the legal standard goes way down,” Barnes said.

“So you no longer have to prove actual malice or malevolent intent. All you have to prove is that a false statement was made — or in Kentucky, the law is even broader, ‘an unflattering impression given and a person’s impression in a false light’ — and otherwise … that it just be negligent to do so.”

Well, that’s problematic for some media figures, especially when you consider that the rush to get the story first seemed to overshadow the need to check the facts.

I hope he pushes back so hard that others who can, do file similar suits. It high time we (conservatives, libertarians) stopped taking continual media abuse.

I agree, JG! It's high time that we push back and push back hard. I've had enough.

I want this lawyer to make them all pay for what they did to these kids. I want it to hurt so bad financially, they will think twice the next time.
