All of them will. Never seen a more slam
dunk case.

I wonder if the brothers Ola and Abel Osundario , have a viable lawsuit against the media or Smollett for jumping to conclusions and calling them violent racists? https://www.foxnews.com/politics/kamala-harris-gives-awkward-response-when-asked-about-jussie-smollett-claims

Following is a link to the actual lawsuit filed (for those here it seems did not actually read it)

Sure doesn't look frivolous or easily dismissed. The kid is going to be a millionaire.

Much of the defamation comes from quoting Nathan Phillips and the kids own Arch-Diocese who also went and apologized for their conduct. Sounds pretty iffy to me.

Not sure what showing a video has to do with a suit against a newspaper, but I'll leave that to our experts on the subject. I'm sure their years of legal experience will lead them to the proper conclusion.

In targeting and bullying Nicholas by falsely accusing him of instigating the January 18 incident, the Post conveyed that Nicholas engaged in acts of racism by “swarming” Phillips, “blocking” his exit away from the students, and otherwise engaging in racist misconduct...But the Post did not care about protecting Nicholas. To the contrary, the Post raced with a reckless disregard of the facts and truth... The Post bullied an innocent child with an absolute disregard for the pain and destruction its attacks would cause to his life...

The kid will be a zillionaire when
all the lawsuits are settled. The
evidence is abundant and conclusive.

This is going nowhere.

Reminds me of when George Zimmerman (another worthless racist) tried to sue NBC News.

From the lawsuit:

"....which caused permanent damage to his life and reputation."

LOL... it's been less than a month, what "permanent damage" has been done? Anyway, most people have already forgotten about the story. This kid will be forgotten about before he graduates high school.

The $250 million is symbolic. They pretty much admit that right in the lawsuit. There's no way they'll get anywhere near that much, and they know it.

I think the Post is going to settle for a few hundred grand, maybe $1-2 million AT MOST, the lawyers will take most of it, and this kid will have a nice jump start on paying for college.

Reading the documents, it appears to me a bunch of grandstanding. The Post reported on a video that was in circulation. They didn't make the video.
It's America. He can sure and the lawyers will charge.

Unfortunately, I think the Post lawyers are going to have to consider how a jury might react to a fresh faced kid against a newspaper conglomerate. I think they may indeed offer a settlement. Personally I'd like to see it settled in court, but it's not my money to lose.


I think the kid's lawyers smelled a money grab and took it.
