The Chicago Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society
Presents a Luncheon Forum
First Amendment Considerations in Excessive Force Cases
A distinguished panel will discuss the issues, and competing constitutional considerations, surrounding the use and dissemination of information, and potential evidence, in cases where law enforcement officers are alleged to have used excessive force against a person.
AMY JACOBSON, currently a co-host of Chicago’s Morning Answer, the morning program on Chicago radio station WIND, AM 560, and formerly an Emmy Winning reporter with eighteen years of experience including Chicago TV station WMAQ, will present the reporter’s perspective on the public’s “right to know” and the effect of the press in policing the police.
RICHARD A. DEVINE, former State’s Attorney of Cook County, Illinois, and currently Of Counsel to Cozen O’Connor, will present the prosecutor’s perspective on issues ranging from maintaining the fairness, integrity and effectiveness of an investigation to the preservation of a jury pool.
The discussion will be moderated by Professor ERIN F. DELANEY, Associate Professor of Law, Northwestern University School of Law and Associate Professor of Political Science, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences.
