  1. Protecting Sources and Materials

The Reporters Committee filed an amicus brief in an entirely sealed case in New York Supreme Court in which a litigant reportedly seeks disclosure of journalist Teri Buhl’s confidential source.  Ms. Buhl has reported that she plans to fight these efforts with support from the Press Freedom Defense Fund.  Our amicus brief argues that the court should unseal this case and conduct proceedings in open court.  It also argues that the New York shield law applies to Ms. Buhl and that the Court should permit the Reporters Committee to present oral argument at a hearing on Jan. 31, 2019.
