Phillips Nizer Statement on Protest Rally11/04/2021
Phillips Nizer supports the First Amendment right to peaceful protest. We have a long history of First Amendment advocacy, from our founding partner Louis Nizer arguing First Amendment cases before the United States Supreme Court and combatting anti-Communist “blacklisting” to our more recent efforts advocating in support of artists’ speech and defending the rights of voters in civic participation.
Phillips Nizer is providing legal services to a client as ordered and approved by the New York State Supreme Court. We serve this client, as we do all of our clients, in accordance with our professional and ethical responsibilities as attorneys.
The claims made by Libra Max and her allies are demonstrably false and defamatory to our firm and attorneys. We will address this at the appropriate time and in the appropriate forum.
Due to the sensitive nature of guardianship proceedings, and pursuant to the duty of privilege that we owe to our client, we will not offer any further comment at this time.
Marc A. Landis, Managing Partner
