Sheppard Mullin is proud to announce that Special Counsel Tenaya Rodewald has been recognized by the First Amendment Coalition (FAC) in connection with her work as lead pro bono counsel in statewide litigation to enforce Senate Bill 1421, California’s new police transparency law. In presenting its 2019 Free Speech & Open Government Award to the California Reporting Project, FAC specifically mentioned Rodewald’s “tireless and creative work” in representing FAC and several media coalitions and noted that she was “the principal author of many of the key legal arguments that vindicated the public’s right to know.”

In addition to Rodewald, several other Sheppard Mullin attorneys were actively involved in helping enforce SB 1421, including partner James Chadwick and associates Andrea Feathers, Matt Halgren, Tina Salvato, and Gianna Segretti.
