How did Nick Sandmann build his net worth?

Nick Sandmann and his family have filed as many as 13 lawsuits against media outlets for defamation and emotional distress. One of the lawsuits amounted to $250 million dollars. One was thrown out, while the other was settled for a much smaller but undisclosed amount.

One law expert, William Jacobson from Cornell Law School, estimates the deal with CNN was worth at least seven figures.

At the start of 2019, Nick visited Washington DC with his school to join the March for Life rally. During the trip, there was a confrontation in front of the Lincoln Memorial with an indigenous man, Nathan Phillips, who was in DC for a different rally.

Nick was wearing one of President Donald Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” campaign hats. The confrontation was shared via social media and went viral, mostly for negative reasons.

Unfortunately and predictably, much of the mainstream media jumped to conclusions about the MAGA hat wearing teenager in the viral videos which resulted in inaccurate information being published. This false narrative led to threats against Nick Sandmann, school closures, and more.

Nick’s family was under duress for almost a year due to the inaccuracies in the reports shared online and on TV. The Covington Diocese and Nick’s school hired private investigators to dig deeper into the events of that day which revealed a different story. As a result, Nick’s family filed several defamation lawsuits against various parties.

The Washington Post

A $250 million defamation lawsuit was filed and was dismissed in July of 2019. The suit was then altered to change the language to be more specific, and it was eventually settled in the middle of 2020. The settlement amount has not been publicly disclosed.
