Documents Categories: ,

FOR READING ONLY:  This is the March 27, 2018 New York Law Journal’s analysis of the Second Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals February 9, 2018 holding for the plaintiff, Dee Dee Halleck, community producer, that she was wrongly suspended from using Manhattan Neighborhood Network’s (MNN) facilities.  The Court found that MNN was a “state actor,” and therefore its public access channels were “public forums” Constitutionally protected under the First Amendment.
