Participated in an amicus brief (with the Reporters Committee and other amici) filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Martin v. Rollins.  The brief argued that the First Amendment protects the right to gather and publish news on matters of public interest – including the activities of government officials in the public performance of their duties – and that any privacy interests under the statute must give way to the First Amendment issues at stake.  The brief asked the court to affirm the district court decision and find that the Massachusetts wiretapping statute may not constitutionally prohibit the secret recording of government officials, including law enforcement officers, performing their duties in public spaces where no reasonable expectation of privacy exists.  [2019]
