DALLAS, TX—In the age of social media, public sector employees must differentiate between speaking as a private citizen or government employee. During a non-CLE program presented by the American Bar Association Government and Public Sector Lawyers Division, Jackson Walker partner James Carlos McFall will discuss First Amendment issues for these employees and present ripped-from-the-headlines examples.
In addition to James, panelists will include: Paula Frederick (Georgia State Bar) as moderator; Ted Hirt (George Washington University Law School; previously, Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice); and Laura Lee Prather (Haynes and Boone).
The program is co-sponsored by the Forum on Communications Law and the Civil Rights and Social Justice’s First Amendment Committee.
McFall focuses his practice on media, sports, entertainment, and complex commercial litigation, including cases of alleged fraud, tortious interference, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, and theft of trade secrets.
