Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, who was accused of disrespecting a Native American man during last year's March for Life, has announced that he is suing five additional media outlets, including the New York Times, CBS, and ABC for their role in publishing false information about him.

Sandmann's attorneys filed a report with the U.S. District Court announcing their intentions to file lawsuits against New York Times, CBS, ABC, Gannett, and Rolling Stone.

He has already filed lawsuits against CNN, the Washington Post, and NBC Universal. While the lawsuits against the Post and NBC are still pending, CNN settled its lawsuit in January.

It is unclear how much in monetary damages Sandmann is seeking in the latest lawsuits.
