This program is worth 1.0 General CLE Credit

Deborah Fox, Esq., Principal and Chair of the First Amendment Practice and Trial & Litigation Practice - Meyers Nave
Margaret (Meg) Rosequist, Esq., Of Counsel, Meyers Nave

May government entities and elected officials block or regulate public participation on their social media accounts? May elected officials unfriend, deny or not respond to friend requests on Facebook? May people be blocked, muted or unfollowed on Twitter? How should policies be drafted and enforced regarding the public’s use of these social media accounts? This session explains the legal standards through case law from the Second, Fourth and Fifth Circuits, and the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit’s landmark decision in Knight v. Trump. The session includes practical advice for complying with this emerging area of law, as well as discussion of Twitter’s permanent suspension of @realDonaldTrump and Facebook’s indefinite suspension of Trump's accounts on Facebook and Instagram.
