Covington Catholic Teen’s Lawyer: Hundreds in Media Will ‘Pay a High Price’ for Defamation

One of the attorneys representing Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann and his family says he’s confident that the media entities that smeared the 16-year-old boy will eventually be brought to justice in a Covington, Ky., courtroom.

“We clearly think that we’re going to be able to get these issues in front of a jury, and frankly, that jury is most likely to be here in Covington Kentucky,” said Sandmann family attorney Todd McMurtry Thursday. He added, “And this whole community knows what happened.”
