Atlanta libel lawyer Lin Wood has filed a second defamation lawsuit on behalf of a Kentucky teenager who was subjected to criticism and ridicule after his visage went viral on Twitter.

On Tuesday, Wood sued CNN for $275 million, claiming the Atlanta-based cable network broadcast at least four allegedly defamatory segments and published nine online articles on 16-year-old Nicholas Sandmann’s face-to-face encounter with a Native American activist on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The suit claims the broadcasts impugning Sandmann were done with “actual malice.”
