Too Much Media LLC v. Shellee Hale Decision

New Jersey Supreme Court –

The June 2011 New Jersey Supreme Court Too Much Media LLC v. Shellee Hale decision. While the court found that the shield law does not apply to the defendant in the case, the decision threw out parts of an appellate court decision that would have required those seeking the law’s protections to show that they adhere to professional journalistic standards or have credentials from traditional media.
