Here's an interesting opinion from a lawyer who has direct experience with these kinds of lawsuits. Here are a few snippets. It's not a long piece and well worth the read.
Yeah, The Covington Kids Have A Case

Kurt Schlichter, Posted: Jan 24, 2019 12:01 AM

. . . The hard fact is that you don’t want to get into any lawsuit if you can help it, and you especially don’t want to get into one that you can’t win. And when it comes to lawsuits over damage to your reputation, you mostly can’t win.

. . . So, can the Covington Kids sue? The short answer – yes.

. . . Do we as a society want to countenance people ignoring contrary evidence that is readily available to them to destroy the lives of kids to fulfill their creepy agendas? What happened here is more than just libel (though I think it is libel). It’s also a mixture of invasion of privacy and probably a civil rights violation in terms of them being targeted for their race, their religion, and the political expression manifested by their headgear.

. . . We need to decide as a society whether we are going to accept this dreadful phenomenon or stamp it out by making the perpetrators pay. If the old legal framework cannot right this wrong, then we need to create a new legal framework that will. And you do that by suing the hell out of them.

. . . We better draw the line now, or these sociopaths might just get real power and then there is no turning back.
If they sue, I hope they win bigly, because otherwise, a loss will only encourage an escalation of this kind of liberal media shitstorm in the future.

Interesting story about America's favorite "tribal elder"Native American activist Nathan Phillips has violent criminal record and escaped from jail as teenager
Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist who falsely accused Covington Catholic High School students of blocking him during a confrontation he initiated, has a criminal record — including assault and escape from jail — and appears to have misrepresented his military service.

Phillips, 63, suggested high school junior Nick Sandmann, the teenager at the center of the viral encounter after separate D.C. rallies, face expulsion for failing to "accept any responsibility” or apologize to Phillips publicly.

In his own teenage years and early 20s, Phillips, using his adoptive name Nathaniel R. Stanard, was charged with escaping from prison, assault, and several alcohol-related crimes, according to local news reports at the time from his hometown of Lincoln, Neb.
Interesting if true I should have said....

Digging up more trash on tribal elder:

While vague in recent interviews, Nathan Phillips appears to have previously claimed Vietnam veteran status, to have been "in theater" (or at least that his discharge papers show him "in theater"), and to have received an honorable discharge.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I tacked close to danger with a 241. Almost came within 100 of seeing what I was made of.

Woulda had to rename it "Eddy".

Wait a minute, that makes no sense. Rocky was a bout a gay boxer not a war hero ... that was first blood or something.

Never mind, move along.

DO NOT LEARN TO CODE.

The last thing us IT professionals need is a bunch of second rate coders driving down labor costs while fucking up IT even more than "normal".

Thank you. ;)
