Nick Sandmann's lawyers have made a "serious tactical mistake" in their lawsuit against The Washington Post, according to Alan Dershowitz.
Lawyers representing a Kentucky high school student involved in a virulent social media clash announced Tuesday that they were suing The Post for $ 250 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
The lawsuit, which was filed in a federal court in Kentucky, accused The Post of practicing "a modern form of McCarthyism" by targeting Sandmann and "using its vast financial resources to get into the gallery". bully by publishing a series of fake and defamatory printed material and articles online (…) to smear a young boy who, in his opinion, was an acceptable victim in their war against the president. "
Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School, was attacked in January after a video showed him face to face with an American, Nathan Phillips, while he was wearing a "Make America Great" Again. "

On "Fox News @ Night", Dershowitz, professor emeritus of law at Harvard, and Kentucky governor Matt Bevin (right), broke the lawsuit and its meaning.
Dershowitz said Sandmann had a "big" chance of winning the case or having the Post settled, but his lawyers made a serious mistake of law by mentioning President Trump and the broad media in the lawsuit.
"They'd do a lot better not to argue and just say, 'We represent a guy, a kid, his reputation has been undermined.' This is not about Donald Trump, he's not going to It's not about trying to cool the media, "Dershowtiz said. "A serious tactical error on the part of the lawyers."
He added that Sandmann should seriously consider using a different lawyer, more interested in presenting the details of Sandmann's case, as opposed to a general lawsuit against the media.
"If it was just to hurt this young man, they would have a much better chance of winning."
