CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The legal team for Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann isn’t done yet.

After targeting The Washington Post and CNN with a pair of $250 million lawsuits, Lin Wood tweeted this week that the team would now be going after NBC/MSNBC. NBCUniversal is listed as the defendant in the most recent suit.

Wood described this string of legal action as a “journey for justice” in the tweet.

Wood went on to tweet that he was seeking accountability for false accusations on Sandmann’s behalf, saying Sandmann did not instigate a hate crime or engage in racist conduct. He went on to hashtag the phrase “reform our media."

Nick Sandmann was thrust into the national spotlight when videos of him and his classmates outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., went viral in January. The initial video showed the now self-identified Sandmann and Nathan Phillips, an indigenous man who was participating in the Indigenous Peoples March.

Sandmann and his classmates were in D.C. for the March For Life.
