Vaping in Schools
Bryan and Tim were featured in the article "Student Vaping in Schools," drawing on their experience representing school districts in this space.
As Tim notes, "school districts are left to try and address the public health crisis that has been caused by the marketing of these items to children."
Bryan indicates "the best way for school districts to explore potentially filing a claim is to contact a law firm involved in this Juul litigation on behalf of school districts to discuss their options."
Our firm is engaged with districts throughout Pennsylvania on such litigation against Juul. Please call us at 814-459-2800 for more information.
Free Speech in Schools
Jennifer was featured in the article "Free Speech: An Overview of Students' First Amendment Rights." She represents many school districts in northwest Pennsylvania, often advising them on first amendment-related issues.
As noted in the article, she says "School officials need to understand when they have the ability to restrict free speech of students, and when don't. If they don't have that awareness, they might accidentally violate a student's First Amendment rights without knowing they did so."
Both articles can be found here.
