The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press has announced that its volunteer media lawyers will staff a 24/7 hotline for newsgathering issues that could arise around the upcoming election. This may be a useful resource in addition to dedicated First Amendment counsel on staff or on call.
You may reach volunteer lawyers staffing the hotline:
Through the Reporters Committee website:
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
By calling the hotline: 1-800-336-4243.
