Media Law and Defamation
Many of our attorneys have defended newspapers and other publications against libel and defamation claims. We routinely advise newspapers and other entities regarding Freedom of Information Act issues and publication review issues, and we represent newspapers and other entities in litigation concerning these issues. We have represented media entities that have received third-party subpoenas, and we have filed suit to challenge court-issued prior restraints that restrict First Amendment rights. We are counsel for the Arkansas Press Association. We also prepare a general compilation of Arkansas state law regarding privacy and related decisions against the media for the Fifty State Survey published by the Libel Defense Resource Center.
