In the fast-paced world of reporting news on a minute-by-minute basis, the Media Law team stands ready to act quickly to help media clients. This includes legal advice on the news gathering process as well as providing prepublication review, not intruding on the editorial process but as lawyers serving as part of a team. The Media Law team can assist with representation on defamation, invasion of privacy, and other ways that print, broadcast, and internet media organizations come under attack. The team is also equipped to deal with access issues of all types. Attorneys on this team have extensive experience with Florida’s Public Records and Government in The Sunshine Laws. They can also respond quickly when reporters are barred from judicial and other governmental proceedings. Likewise, they have the experience and know-how to defend against subpoenas to media organizations or their reporters.
Attorneys on the Media Law team are frequent speakers on media law issues at seminars for lawyers, journalists, and the general public. Ausley McMullen has proudly been a member of the Florida First Amendment Foundation for years.
