An attorney representing Nick Sandmann, the 16-year-old Covington Catholic High School student who was smeared as a bigot when he was, in fact, the victim, will be suing Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist who lied about his encounter with the teen.

Atlanta-based lawyer L. Lin Wood told LifeSiteNews on Thursday that he would be suing Phillips for his “lies and false accusations” against the Covington Catholic students – and Sandmann in particular. He also told the outlet that he would “file the first round of civil lawsuits within the next two weeks.”

Sandmann’s attorneys previously sent letters to 54 entities – including Democrat politicians, news outlets, and individual reporters – notifying them of a potential lawsuit. That list “continues to grow in number,” Wood told LifeSite, adding that Sandmann’s attorneys are “in the process of sending formal written retraction demands in conformity with statutes in states in which litigation may be filed.”

Wood also released a 15-minute video detailing the lies and smears perpetrated against his client by the media and others.

LifeSite asked Wood why Sandmann and the other Covington Catholic students were still being investigated by the Diocese of Covington.

“We have no idea why the investigation by the Diocese has not been concluded but we are confident that any objective review of the evidence will conclude that Nick did nothing wrong,” Wood responded.

“Nick remained calm and well-mannered despite being confronted by an activist beating a drum within inches of his face while chanting loudly. Nick did not utter one word except to quietly urge a classmate to refrain from making any comments that might aggravate the situation created by Phillips and the Black Hebrew Israelites.”

Wood also said that Sandmann was initially barred from returning to school after the encounter, but the school relented after attorneys stepped in.

Phillips’ smear of the Covington Catholic students – and especially Sandmann – is “well documented,” as Wood told Life Site. Phillips initially told the Washington Post that the teenagers surrounded him as he was simply trying to get out of a bad situation and proceed to the Lincoln memorial.

Once video showed that it was Phillips who approached the teenagers – and not the other way around – he changed his story to claim the Covington teens were engaged in a racist back-and-forth with some Black Hebrew Israelites.

Further video showed that it was the Black men who were harassing the teenagers, who then began singing school songs to drown out the harassment. Phillips then walked into the middle of the group and began beating his drum just inches from Sandmann’s face, as the student smiled.

Phillips then claimed that he believed there would be violence between the Catholic teens and the Hebrew Israelites and that his idea to defuse the situation was to… walk into a large group of teenagers and beat a drum in one’s face while his fellow activists told the teenagers to “go back to Europe.”

      yes Good this insanity needs to stop I commend the attorney who is stepping up and willing to basically waste his time with all the necessary lawsuits that are going on to stop such ridiculous behavior. I am thankful also for the video coverage showing teens did nothing wrong.

        Well, someone paid his way and Phillips himself to be there to demonstrate, so maybe Phillips can get his “sponsors “ to pay …
        About time this is done to these “activists”

        Phillips made a choice that day, just because he is a drunk and homeless doesn’t enter in to his accountability for his actions. There are plenty of free programs to help him, maybe he should have gone to them.

        Nathan Phillips is a member of AIM who has already been raising money for his defense.

      Absolutely. Get this redskin where it hurts. He thinks just because he served in the Marines for four years that we MAGAs are going to let him off scott free? Scalp the wigwam! How dare he have an opinion about a white boy! Wake up, we are making America GREAT AGAIN and that means WITHE BOYS FIRST. And sue all media and sue the Catholic Church and sue Hillary Clinton! WHITE BOYS RULE this nation and don’t fucking forget it! And if you have a problem I will smirk in your face. MAGA!

        You are trying to make it an issue of skin color, when actually it’s a matter of honesty versus dishonesty. We need to judge people by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin.

        It’s really obvious you’re a lib trying to do, what you think, is an impression of a conservative. Sadly, for you, you have bought into the leftist lie that the right is racist when in fact nothing could be further from the truth.

        Shut the fuck up, you stupid ignorant mother fucker! This lying sack of shit perpetrated a false story against a group of boys who did nothing wrong and he deserves to be sued. So what that the boys happen to be white? What does that mean, that it’s ok to harass and do anything to them and there shouldn’t be any consequences? Yeah, that’s probably what your moronic liberal brain does think. Did you even watch any of the videos, the full videos that prove this asshole was lying and trying to get a group of innocent teenagers in trouble for nothing? Shut your fucking mouth, you brain’dead piece of shit moron!

    Also, hold the Diocese accountable too. Quite frankly a retraction is not good enough. What that young man has had to endure is nothing short of disgusting and disgraceful. They should ALL be shamed.

    Sue them all. Sue the heck out of everyone. These boys did nothing. The radicals tried to cause a terrible situation, and ruin a young boy’s life. The media went along with it. And be sure to sue everyone that sent a horrible nasty twit. This makes my heart sing.

    Sue the pants off of everybody. The nonsense will only stop if those guilty begin to be held accountable for their misdeeds. Same for our government……when those who have already been proven guilty of breaking our laws (and Hillary HAS been proven to have broken our laws……her best cover man Comey gave the world everything it needed to put her in jail) we will slowly slide down the path to the third world.

    First let’s start by saying it is not about skin it is about politics and second if he is homeless it is by chose his choice. I am sure he get a check yearly from the government and if there is a casino he gets quarterly per cap. So unless he owns a lot he has money more than you would think. As for the child he should not have got in his face. Just because you call yourself an activists does not give you that right.

    What’s wrong with everyone can’t anyone see the punk kid was taunting the Indian with the way he was looking at him. From the beginning it was the kid taunting the old man but then changed and it shouldn’t have. The Indian should be suing the punk ass kid.
