Lawyer for JonBenet Ramsey family vows to sue CBS over documentary

By Keith Coffman | DENVER

The lawyer for the family of slain child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey denounced a CBS documentary theorizing she was killed by her brother, Burke, as a "false and unprofessional television attack" and threatened to sue the network for libel.

L. Lin Wood, an Atlanta attorney who said he had successfully other media outlets over similar accusations against Burke Ramsey, branded the program as a broadcast riddled with lies, misrepresentations, distortions and omissions.

I will be filing a lawsuit on behalf of Burke Ramsey, Wood told Reuters in a telephone interview. CBS' false and unprofessional attacks on this young man are disgusting and revolting.

The network responded to Wood with a terse statement: CBS stands by the broadcast and will do so in court.

1. I KNEW it!

That Lin Wood would sue CBS was my very first thought after watching the documentary. Years ago he threatened to sue Forums For Justice and FFJ posters individually for discussing the case. FFJ owner told him to bring it on. He didn't. It'll be interesting to see how the CBS thing unfolds.
