Defamation Lawsuit Against Netflix Dropped + New York Protects Dead Celebrities

Scott Hervey and Josh Escovedo discuss two topics in this episode of The Briefing. First, they talk about GEO Group’s defamation lawsuit against Netflix over the show “Messiah,” just dropped. Then, at 8:20, they move onto New York’s new post-mortem Right of Publicity law.

The video recording of this conversation is on Weintraub Tobin’s YouTube channel.
