Eli Segal, a partner with Pepper Hamilton and a member of the Media and Trial and Dispute Resolution Practice Groups, and Michael A. Schwartz, a partner and co-chair of the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department of Pepper Hamilton, chair of the firm’s White Collar Litigation and Investigations Practice Group, and a member of the Media and Communications Practice Group, were quoted in the June 29, 2018 Philadelphia Inquirer article, "Inquirer, Other Pa. News Outlets Petition Supreme Court for Access to Grand Jury Report on Clergy Sex Abuse."

"Needless to say, Report No. 1 [the grand jury report] is of extraordinary importance to the public in general and to abuse victims in particular," Eli Segal and Michael A. Schwartz, the Pepper Hamilton LLP lawyers representing the media organizations, wrote in court papers filed Friday.

...

"As the supervising judge explained, this level of process was more than adequate, and to find otherwise would fundamentally alter the nature of investigating grand juries and thus undermine the Legislature's intent in passing the Investigating Grand Jury Act," Segal and Schwartz wrote.
