Jackson Walker partner Stacy Allen spoke at the Texas Association of Broadcasters’ Southwest Broadcast Newsroom Workshop on September 20, 2014, at the University of Texas at Austin.
Stacy served on a panel alongside fellow Texas media attorneys, taking questions on the laws affecting Texas newsgathering such as libel, trespass, privacy, the Texas Public Information Act, the Texas Open Meetings Act, the Free Flow of Information Act (shield law), the Citizen Participation Act (anti-SLAPP law), and the Defamation Mitigation Act (uniform retractions and corrections law). Michael Schneider of the Texas Association of Broadcasters served as panel moderator.
Stacy Allen’s aggressive approach to discovery and trial preparation has resulted in favorable judgments and settlements for a wide array of sophisticated commercial clients. His national practice emphasizes intellectual property litigation (on behalf of both alleged infringers and IP owners), defense of media companies and news organizations against defamation and privacy tort claims, defense of insurers in class actions and other complex litigation, defense of managed care companies in claims arising from complex provider contracts, and other commercial lawsuits and arbitrations alleging breach of contract, unfair trade practices, fraud, and other business torts. Stacy received his B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of Southern California and his J.D. from Yale Law School.
