Advocate Zachary Slayback Published in the Daily Caller

Young Voices Advocate Zachary Slayback was published in The Daily Caller writing about why the merger between US Airways and American Airlines should be allowed to proceed:

In the end, it is unlikely that the DOJ’s lawsuit will succeed, with US Airways and American likely settling to use fewer overall slots at specific airports and to reach an endgame with the DOJ. Despite the eventual success of the merger, every day the DOJ attempts to block is another day that consumers, shareholders, and the global economy miss out on the benefits.

Associate Cathy’s Revenge Porn Post Referenced in Slate

Young Voices Associate Cathy Reisenwitz’s Talking Points Memo article, Revenge Porn Is Awful, But The Law Against It Is Worse was referenced in a recent Slate article on the topic, How to Make Revenge Porn a Crime.

Free speech advocates worry that revenge porn laws are too broad and vague, and thus risk chilling protected speech. Is there a collision here with the First Amendment? These concerns are real, but not insurmountable. Careful and precise drafting is the key. Revenge porn laws can and should make clear that it is a crime to distribute someone’s sexually explicit images without consent if those images do not concern matters of public importance. Worded that way, a law wouldn’t apply, for example, to the woman who published Anthony Weiner’s crotch shots.
