    A federal judge in Kentucky tossed Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann's massive defamation lawsuit against the Washington Post on Friday. What did the judge say? U.S. District Judge William Bertelsman said the Post was within its First Amendment rights to publish the subjective opinion of Native American Nathan Phillips, whose account of what happened on the Lincoln Monument fueled outrage against Sandmann and his classmates. "The Court accepts Sandmann's statement that, when he was standing motionless in the confrontation with Philip's his intent was to calm the situation and not to impede or block anyone," Bertelsman said in...

In one of its first stories about the incident, The Washington Post quoted Phillips as saying...

    The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)'s Teaching Tolerance project doubled down, however, seeking to teach a lesson. On Friday, Teaching Tolerance senior writer Cory Collins warned that hearing "both sides" of this story is not enough. He suggested that because Sandmann a teenager so roundly mocked and villainized by the media that his parents have hired a lawyer to sue for libel or slander had unique privilege in this situation, America's teachers should focus on Phillips's experience as a teaching moment about the oppression of Native Americans.
