Please join us for breakfast and conversation with Stephen Shackelford in Westport on Wednesday, October 18.  Mr. Shackelford was co-lead counsel for Dominion Voting Systems in their high-profile defamation suit against Fox News and Fox Corporation, which settled last April for a breathtaking $787.5 million, believed to be the largest defamation settlement in US history.  Mr. Shackelford will talk about his work on this complex case, as well as share his insights on the First Amendment in an era of ubiquitous social media and news streaming.
