Nick Sandmann v. Washington Post: The defendant countersues

Just under the 30-day limit for filing a response, the Washington Post has filed its response to Nick Sandmann’s defamation complaint. He alleged they defamed him, now they claim they didn’t, and in fact, printed a front-page Editor’s Note that absolves themselves.

We should expect relatively little additional comment from WaPo, since the traditional response to inquiries by corporate lawyers is “we do not comment on pending litigation.”
