Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann was falsely portrayed in the media as a racist and harassing an elderly Indian man. However, after the full video was released it showed the kid was targeted and harassed. This has led the Sandmann family to obtain superstar lawyer L. Lin Wood in order to target libel lawsuits against celebrities and media who defamed these kids.

Lin Wood sent a letter notifying all celebrities, politicians, Journalists, and Media organizations that they need to save any information they had before they reported libel information against these kids. The letter was sent to 54 different people.

The letter Lin Wood sent states, “Our law firm represents the family of Nick Sandmann regarding the unfortunate incident in Washington D.C. on January 18, 2019, and the XXXXX’sresponse to same (the “Sandmann Matter”). I write on behalf of our clients to notify you of your obligation to preserve information that may be relevant to potential litigation between our clients and the XXXXX. Please forward this letter to your legal counsel immediately.”
