BBK Offers Free Webinars on Social Media, Pension Litigation and ADA Accessibility

June 29, 2018
Best Best & Krieger is offering several free one-hour webinars on a variety of legal issues, new legislation and opportunities that League members may find of interest.
 
July 11Social Media Meets the First Amendment
 
Although it may not feel like it, public employees and elected officials still maintain their rights to privacy and free speech, but is there a bright line? In this webinar, Best Best & Krieger LLP attorneys HongDao Nguyen and Christine Wood will discuss how the First Amendment interacts with social media platforms and how it applies to recent federal and state rulings in every day practice.
 
July 19Update on Pension Litigation
 
With the split in opinions regarding the scope and application of the California Rule in the Marin and Alameda cases, the California Supreme Court has agreed to hear appeals of both. While these two cases, and another pending before the California Supreme Court — Cal Fire — all center around changes made by Assembly Bills 340 and 197 in late 2012, commonly referred to as PEPRA, the implications of a ruling by the state’s high court could be significant. This webinar, presented by Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner Isabel Safie, will provide an update of these cases, including the arguments pursued by all parties, and our take on how the Court will likely rule.  
 
July 24Creating an Accessible City
 
This webinar by Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner Michael Maurer discusses the basic requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it relates to public facilities, with an emphasis on the public right of way. The presentation will discuss Title II and the duty that public agencies have to make all services, programs and activities accessible. The presentation will explain mechanisms for ensuring that cities maintain facilities in a manner that provides access to all citizens.
