Protecting First Amendment rights: Turkheimer & Hadden advises blogger in defense of defamation case

As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution today, Turkheimer & Hadden partner Stefan Turkheimer recently served as counsel for Melanie Goux, editor of the web site Blog for Democracy, and Jane Bradshaw, a former Democratic Party of Georgia official, in a defamation lawsuit filed against them and blogger Andre Walker by Rashad Richey. The lawsuit was dismissed before Goux and Bradshaw were served with the lawsuit, but the dismissal as it related to them was "with prejudice," meaning it cannot be refiled.

Our firm is proud to have been involved in the successful resolution of this lawsuit. We are committed to ensuring that the principals and guarantees established by our founders in the Constitution continue to be upheld.
