A Federalist Society panel of free speech and national security experts discusses what, if anything, can be done about the Wikileaks matter. Who, if anyone, can or should be prosecuted, and for what? How strong is a potential free speech defense? What is the potential liability of re-publishers? As technology continues to develop, who qualifies as a “journalist” and “press?” These and other questions will be addressed by our experts.

Featuring:

  • Mr. Floyd Abrams, Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP
  • Dr. Gabriel Schoenfeld, Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute, Inc. and Resident Scholar, The Witherspoon Institute
  • Mr. Eric Snyder, Kobre & Kim LLP
  • Moderator: Mr. Jamil N. Jaffer, Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans & Figel, PLLC
