Receive The Progeny: Justice Brennan’s Fight to Preserve Legacy of Times v. Sullivan

Due to a generous donation by the American Bar Association, any one who contributes $100 or more to the New England First Amendment Coalition before Jan. 1 will receive a free copy of what famed First Amendment attorney Floyd Abrams calls an “intellectual treasure chest.”

The Progeny, by Lee Levine and Stephen Wermiel, is a compelling work of historical non-fiction focusing on the progeny of New York Times v. Sullivan and examining how U.S. Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan nurtured and developed the constitutional law of defamation.
