STEINMETZ v. COYLE & CARON INC. | No. 16-1996 | 1st Cir. | January 24, 2017 | The Cyberlaw Clinic filed an amicus brief (pdf) on behalf of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press in the case, Steinmetz v. Coyle & Caron Inc., First Circuit No. 16-1996. The brief supports defendant-appellee in the case and focuses on the ways in which the Massachusetts Anti-SLAPP Statute (Mass. Gen. Laws c. 231, § 59H) narrowly and properly protects the First Amendment interests of Massachusetts’ citizens. RCFP was joined on the brief by The Associated Press, Gannett Co., Inc., the New England First Amendment Coalition, and the New England Newspaper & Press Association, Inc.
