The Daniel Anderl Judicial Security & Privacy Act

Concerns over violent threats to federal judges has led to a bill called the Daniel Anderl Act, named for a judge’s son who was shot to death by a man enraged at the judge’s decision in his case. We discuss the contents of the Act, and the challenges it might face, and answer the question: how will this legislation protect judges, and how might it inhibit the work of journalists?

Jennifer Rodgers, former federal prosecutor and Lecturer-in-Law at Columbia Law School, talks with Christopher Pioch and Jessenia Vazcones, Co-Chairs of the City Bar’s Task Force for the Independence of Lawyers and Judges, and Matthew Schafer, Chair of the City Bar’s Communications & Media Law Committee.
