  1. Newsgathering

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press and 8 First Amendment and press advocacy organizations filed an amicus brief in support of PEN American Center’s opposition to the government’s motion to dismiss in PEN American Center, Inc. v. Trump.  The amicus brief argues that PEN adequately alleged a diversion-of-resources injury in its complaint sufficient to demonstrate the injury-in-fact necessary to establish standing and emphasizes that, as a result of the changing economics of the news business, smaller and nonprofit news media outlets increasingly rely on organizations like PEN and amici to vindicate First Amendment rights.  The amicus brief was drafted by attorneys at WilmerHale.
