National Law Journal Discusses Trump’s ‘Cease and Desist’ Against Tell-All Book Publisher With Partner Jessica Mason

04 January 2018 News

Gardere labor and employment attorney Jessica Glatzer Mason spoke with The National Law Journal on whether the government could restrict publication of Steve Bannon’s exposé on the presidency, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," via a cease-and-desist letter from Charles Harder, President Donald Trump’s legal counsel in the matter.  

According to The National Law Journal, “Harder’s cease and desist letter appears more like an intimidation tactic used often in the corporate world to pile on costs to stop accusations from moving forward, Mason said. There does not appear to be a strong reason to restrict free speech in this instance.”

“The competency of the president is a matter of public importance,” Mason said.

Mason represents employers and executives in their labor and employment litigation pre-trial, trial and appellate matters around the U.S. and before administrative agencies, including the Texas Workforce Commission, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the U.S. Department of Labor.
