Eli Segal Quoted in Columbia Journalism Review Article, 'Judge Weighs in Favor of First Amendment by Striking Down 'Silencing Act''

Pepper associate Eli Segal was quoted in the May 1, 2015 Columbia Journalism Review article, "Judge Weighs in Favor of First Amendment by Striking down 'Silencing Act.'"

Eli Segal, a Pepper Hamilton associate, said the ruling “leaves journalists in Pennsylvania free to investigate and report on criminal justice issues of great public importance—wrongful convictions and prison conditions to name just a few—without being afraid that their offender sources will be chilled from speaking with them”—or that they themselves will be enjoined or dragged into court for publishing what their sources say.
