Lawyer For Covington Boys Deliver Libel Letters To 54 Media, Lawmakers And Actors

The Law Offices of Hemmer Law sent letters to 54 individuals who allegedly defamed members of Covington Catholic High School and it’s a long list.

Todd V. McMurtry has put together a list of prominent names that posted potentially libel statements against students from Covington High School

This is what the right has to do to fight back. Unless they feel repercussions for their evil it will not stop. On an individual level, Christians should forgive, but that doesn’t mean justice should not be served.

One lawsuit alone probably won’t do much to stop them from continuing to act like crazed lunatics, but if this momentum of holding them accountable continues, their payouts might add up to be enough to make them think twice about making defamatory statements.

The lawyers representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they have sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.

The list includes 50-plus names of organizations or individuals: from presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren to actress Alyssa Milano; individual journalists including Maggie Haberman, Ana Cabrera and David Brooks; national media outlets like the The New York Times, CNN, GQ and TMZ; and the dioceses of Covington and Lexington as well as the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.

The letters tell the organizations and individuals not to destroy any documents in connection with the case, the attorney said. For example, the documents could be drafts or early versions of articles or emails among staff discussing the story.
