Jersey City Times

About the Case

MFIA is suing the city of Jersey City, its mayor, and the mayor’s press secretary on behalf of a local news site and editor who say they were dropped from the city’s press list for publishing a story critical of the mayor. In a lawsuit the clinic and local counsel Weissman & Mintz LLC filed together, the Jersey City Times and founder and editor-in-chief Aaron Morrill are suing for retaliation and viewpoint and content-based discrimination. The lawsuit seeks to restore access to official city communications for Morrill and the Jersey City Times so that they can continue reporting on matters of public interest.
