Media attorney Sig Shutz, of Preti Flaherty, will meet with Maine SPJ on Wednesday, April 8 at 12 p.m. Shutz will talk about Freedom of Access issues, recent libel cases and review how the fair reporting doctrine affects reporters’ work.
The discussion will take place at Preti Flaherty’s office, at the top of One City Center, and there’s a $5 per person charge. Maine SPJ will provide lunch — sandwiches and wraps from City Deli — and parking stubs from the City Center garage can be validated.
Please RSVP by Friday, April 3 to Irwin Gratz at firstname.lastname@example.org. Checks can be made out to “Maine SPJ” and sent to Gratz at MPBN, 323 Marginal Way, Portland, Maine, 04101.
