Covington teenager planning to sue CNN for at least $250M, lawyer says

L. Lin Wood, the attorney, said in an interview with Fox News host Mark Levin airing Sunday that they will be filing the suit early next week, on Monday or Tuesday.

“Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the internet and find the truth and then report it?” he told Levin. “They were vicious. It was false. CNN will be sued next week.

Wood said the dollar amount was determined by a combination of $50 million in reputational damage and $200 million in punitive damages.
