Helping School District Client Navigate the Court of Public Opinion

Hodgson Russ has a full-service approach to handling problems for school district clients when public opinion is a particular concern. Over approximately a six-month period, the firm guided a school district client through disciplinary matters involving tenured teachers that garnered much public attention because of statements by an authority figure from a municipality. Not only did the firm give substantive advice on the disciplinary process for the employees, it also assisted the district in navigating the court of public opinion.
