Native American activist Nathan Phillips just got the bad news that he will face a lawsuit from Nick Sandmann.
Sandmann’s attorney has threatened to sue him and put on notice, with letters to preserve evidence, many in the media and Hollywood, all who should take this as a sign they are next.

Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based lawyer, told LifeSite yesterday that Phillips’ “lies and false accusations” against Sandmann and the other Covington students are “well documented.”

Additionally, Wood confirmed rumors that Sandmann had been prevented from returning to the school for several days after the students returned from Washington.
