    Interesting event around US 'SLAPP' legislation. I don't know if they will publish discussions or add any recordings to YT afterwards...

    Experts to discuss impacts of frivolous defamation lawsuits during March 17 Sunshine Week event

    In honor of Sunshine Week, a panel of experts will examine the impacts to freedom of information and expression of a rising tide of frivolous but expensive lawsuits against news organizations and other speakers that are seen as aimed at deterring journalism in the public interest.

    The moderated conversation, organized by The National Press Club Journalism Institute and the National Press Club's Press Freedom Team, will take place in the National Press Club conference rooms from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 17, 2020

    As many newsrooms across the United States grapple with dwindling revenues – leading to declining coverage by newspapers, magazines, and news websites – the notable increase in so-called Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation has come at a particularly difficult time for American journalism. These lawsuits are often brought by wealthy, powerful individuals and institutions who may object to news coverage critical of their activities. Plaintiffs who have recently filed SLAPP suits include U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) against McClatchy News, Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax against CBS, and the estate of Michael Jackson against HBO over the documentary 'Leaving Neverland.'

    In recent years, state legislatures have responded to the growing prevalence of frivolous defamation lawsuits by passing or strengthening anti-SLAPP laws. And more states like Virginia and Maryland could soon follow suit.

    Discussing this rise of frivolous defamation lawsuits, their impact on newsrooms, and the possibility for reforming state laws to provide heightened protections for journalists and other content creators are:

    Katie Townsend, legal director at the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press

    Jim McLaughlin, deputy general counsel at The Washington Post

    Michael Schaffer, editor of Washingtonian and former editor of the Washington City Paper when it was sued by Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder

    Max Mishkin (moderator), associate at Ballard Spahr LLP and First Amendment attorney

    Additional speakers may be added.

    For more information, email Press Freedom Team Vice Chair Rachel Oswald at rachelm.oswald@gmail.com

    If a media outlet is pushing a program that is full of lies on someone, they need to be sued. They have to be held responsible for what they promote especially trash like leaving Neverland where there was plenty of evidence showing their lies.

    ....also that the irony in the 'invitation' to this event is that the HBO anti-SLAPP case isn't strictly related to a defamation claim by the MJ Estate, but in relation to an arbitration provision in MJ's contract with HBO. Also that HBO could be argued to be a 'wealthy, powerful' organisation, which broke a pre-existing contract....

    Coronavirus: All California trials delayed; L.A. County courts close to the public

    Criminal and civil trials were discontinued in California for at least two months after a sweeping order was issued late Monday by the state’s chief justice that aims to sharply cut down public traffic in state courthouses during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye said in her order that court facilities were “ill-equipped to effectively allow the social distancing and other public health requirements” that have been imposed across California to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

    “Even if court facilities could allow for sufficient social distancing, the closure of schools means that many court employees, litigants, witnesses, and potential jurors cannot leave their homes to attend court proceedings because they must stay home to supervise their children,” Cantil-Sakauye said in the order.

    The 60-day delay — which puts the courts in California’s 58 counties on a uniform trial delay schedule — came the same day that the presiding judge of Los Angeles Superior Court, Kevin C. Brazile, blocked public access to county courthouses except for attorneys, staff, defendants and “authorized persons,” a vague category that includes news reporters. The clerk’s office will still be available to accept filings and assist people by phone or electronically.

    Due to COVID, the Estate of Michael Jackson has asked for a 60 day extension to file their brief, originally due 4/29/20. If the judge grants, it will be due somewhere near the end of June
    (This is a second extension request. It has been automatically approved by the court. )

    Ha! I'm glad the state found that ancient contract to be able to sue HBO. So wrong though that journalists and anyone can basically say whatever lie or misleading thing they want about someone who's dead.
