CNN has reportedly reached a settlement with Kentucky high school student Nick Sandmann in his defamation suit filed against the news organization, WXIX-TV reports.
The amount of money agreed upon in the settlement has not been disclosed. Sandmann’s lawsuit had sought $800 million from CNN, the Washington Post and NBC Universal.
Trial dates have not been set for Sandmann’s lawsuit against NBC Universal and the Washington Post.
Sandmann’s attorneys have discussed the “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” that the student has and will continue to suffer, adding that they believe the money is to “deter the defendants” from acting similarly in the future.
