A pro-life Covington Catholic High School student has reached a settlement with CNN over a defamation lawsuit he brought against the news outlet for their false reporting about him last year that led to death threats against him and other students. 

Nicholas Sandmann filed the suit against CNN and other media outlets for their coverage of him at the 2019 March for Life rally when a Native American and former Marine named Nathan Phillips confronted him and other teens.

“Yes, We settled with CNN,” Sandmann announced on Twitter Tuesday, getting by Wednesday morning around 12,700 retweets and more than 74,000 likes.
