More than 50 celebrities, politicians, and media organizations could face a lawsuit from the teen at the center of the Covington Catholic High School controversy.
Lawyers representing Nick Sandmann, the teen in a Make America Great Again hat seen smirking at Native American activist Nathan Phillips in the video, sent preservation letters out on Friday.
The letters are seen as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits.
Among those who received the letter were Alyssa Milano, Jim Carrey, Sen Elizabeth Warren, Kathy Griffin, Savannah Guthrie, Bill Maher, and Rep Ilhan Omar.
National media outlets including the New York Times, CNN, and TMZ also received the letters, as did the dioceses of Covington and Lexington and the archdioceses of Louisville and Baltimore.
