A free press is essential to holding the powerful accountable and preserving democracy.  Unfortunately, reporters are all too often hauled into court and asked to disclose their sources.  We have proudly represented a number of journalists facing subpoenas, and have never had a client forced to reveal a source.  Our successes include:

  • Quashed subpoena to journalist Jamie Kalven seeking disclosure of sources regarding the Laquan McDonald shooting, including extensive briefing and live hearing
