Covington Student Files $275M Suit Against NBC

Yahoo News reports:

An attorney representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann said Wednesday that he filed a $275 million defamation lawsuit against NBC Universal on Sandmann’s behalf.

The complaint accuses NBC Universal of attacking Sandmann in its coverage by “relying heavily on biased and unreliable sources without conducting any reasonable investigation of the circumstances surrounding the January 18 incident.”

Lawsuits were filed on behalf of Sandmann earlier this year against The Washington Post and a CNN, each seeking $250 million and $275 million, respectively.
