Media and First Amendment Law
Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP has one of the largest, most experienced media law practices in the region.
The firm’s attorneys are general counsel for the Indiana Broadcasters Association and have assisted the National Association of Broadcasters, the Society of Professional Journalists, the Indiana Counsel for LIN Television and its Indiana stations, and the Hoosier State Press Association, as well as a number of television and radio stations, networks, wire services, advertisers, newspapers and publishers. We have represented these clients in litigation involving defamation, invasion of privacy, access and open door law issues and billboard advertising. We also defend individuals and companies in rights of publicity cases.
We work closely with our media clients, providing pre-publication and pre-broadcast review of articles to ensure libel-free publication; advice and representation with regard to retraction requests; responses to subpoenas; and access to public records and open door law issues. We also provide newsroom seminars to reporters and editors with regard to a vast array of media-related issues, including defamation, invasion of privacy, access and trademark and copyright issues.
We prepare the survey of Indiana law for the annual Media Law Research Center's 50-State Survey of current developments in media privacy law.
In 2008, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP was selected by the Society of Professional Journalists to be the Indiana representative of its National Legal Advocacy Network.
