This past Friday, October 16, 2015, the Ohio State Bar Association hosted its annual Law & Media Conference in Columbus, Ohio. Faruki Ireland & Cox P.L.L. was among the sponsors of this event, which brings together journalists, judges, lawyers, academics, and others from across the country to discuss hot topics in media law. FIC partners Jeff Cox and Erin Rhinehart participated as moderators of panels that discussed the Dayton Bench-Bar Media Forum, as well as drones' impact on news reporting and privacy rights. FIC's Scot Ganow also participated as a speaker on the panel discussing drones. Chris Hollon, a member of the OSBA Law & Media Committee, attended the event.
The conference is organized each year by the OSBA Law & Media Committee, with significant support from OSBA staff. Erin Rhinehart will be the Committee's Vice Chair in 2016.
