OP-ED: Courant Expresses First Amendment Concerns
In Defense of Watchdog Lawsuit
The Courant has begun its defense in the wrongful termination lawsuit I brought against it last month by claiming that losing this case would have a detrimental effect on all newspapers and other media in Connecticut.
This case, lawyers for The Courant wrote, involves issues “that raise questions…on the freedom of the press and the Defendants’ ability to control the content of their newspaper.”
That claim was contained in The Courant’s request that the suit be transferred to the Complex Litigation Docket.
