CBS Being Sued By JonBenet Ramsey's Brother

December 29, 2016
Burke Ramsey has filed a second defamation lawsuit over a recent CBS docuseries that advanced the theory he killed his younger sister, JonBenét, more than two decades ago.

Did you see this special? It was pretty clear that was the implication.

After suing forensic pathologist Dr. Werner Spitz in October for $150 million in damages, lawyers are seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $500 million in punitive damages.

CBS declined to comment but in a previous statement following the suit against Spitz, the network said, "CBS stands by the broadcast and will do so in court."

The civil lawsuit alleges the network damaged his reputation by purposely ignoring substantial evidence that the suit alleges cleared the entire Ramsey family from suspicion in the murder, which remains unsolved.
