The Cincinnati Enquirer reports:
The $250 million lawsuit filed by Nick Sandmann against the Washington Post has been dismissed by a federal judge. U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman, who heard oral arguments earlier this month, issued the ruling on Friday in the case that garnered national attention.
“From our first story on this incident to our last, we sought to report fairly and accurately the facts that could be established from available evidence, the perspectives of all of the participants, and the comments of the responsible church and school officials,” The Post said through a spokesperson.
Sandmann has also sued CNN and NBC. Before Friday’s dismissal, he was seeking more than three-quarters of $1 billion against the three media companies. The cases against CNN and NBC remain pending as of Friday afternoon.
