In case you haven’t heard, the personal attacks and lies against the Covington youth may be coming to a screeching halt. So says their lawyer. ” Attorney Robert Barnes was on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning to discuss the legal options of the children and families at Covington High School in Kentucky against liberal media hacks and far left politicians who misrepresented the events and slandered the children.”
Friday he will file a lawsuit it MSM and the Celebrities haven’t retracted their comments or apologized. This from Atty. Barnes. “Because these are all private citizens and many of them minors and kids the law is that saying anything about them is libel. And you don’t have a defense of actual malice all you have to prove is negligence. So a lot of these journalists who have been saying false statements about these kids, false statements about the kids at the Lincoln Memorial, false statements about various photographs that are related to the school, slurring and libeling the entire school and all the alumnae of the school and all you have to prove is that they were negligent in doing so. At this standpoint at this point in time it is clear that anyone who continues to libel about these kids has done so illegally and can be sued for it.”
Barnes is doing this at no charge for the students. He has stated that cases like this are very expensive and the rich and powerful realize this. He wants an equal playing field for the youth and who can blame him?
In closing, since his appearance on Fox and Friends, Atty. Barnes has received a bomb threat. The threat was emailed and used the same deadline. It said, “I am coming to bomb your office. Get ready. 48 hours. Be ready.” Barnes told The Gateway Pundit that the threat “shows how dangerous the establishment press can be when it excites madness with libelous lies.”
