I told you this wasn't over.

The Washington Times reported:

A federal judge in Kentucky has reopened the $250 million defamation case filed by a Covington Catholic student against the Washington Post after dismissing it in July, allowing the lawsuit to proceed but narrowing its focus.

U.S. District Court Judge William Bertelsman agreed to permit discovery on three of 33 allegedly libelous statements in the Post’s coverage of the Jan. 18 incident pertaining to teenager Nicholas Sandmann. The Post has insisted that its reporting was fair and accurate.

All three flagged statements from the newspaper’s coverage refer to Omaha Nation elder Nathan Phillips being blocked or impeded by Nicholas, a student at Covington Catholic High School, during their viral encounter at the Lincoln Memorial stairs.

“The Court will adhere to its previous rulings as they pertain to these statements except Statements 10, 11, and 33, to the extent that these three statements state that plaintiff ‘blocked’ Nathan Phillips and ‘would not allow him to retreat,’” said Judge Bertelsman in his Monday order.

Only until he rules again on summary judgment. To please you, I'm using a RWC source. :halo:
:cool:

“Suffice to say that the Court has given this matter careful review and concludes that ‘justice requires’ that discovery be had regarding these statements and their context. The Court will then consider them anew on summary judgment,” he said.

Do these high school or college brats think they are going to get awarded 250 million dollars? What line do I stand in? Oh I forgot this is the United States. This country loves awarding ridiculous amounts of money to people who do not deserve it. Nothing new in this case. Next...

They will be awarded.

This is a clear case.

Your parroting your typical Fake News BS is meaningless.

So this guy was harassed on Twitter for what three days? If this is so traumatic, why has Trump been allowed to Tweet lies about everyone in the Democratic party for the last three years?
