Holman Speaks on First Amendment Issues at Masters of Trial Advocacy Retreat

Taft Cleveland partner Ron Holman recently participated in a panel discussion about a First Amendment case (Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College) at the annual Masters of Trial Advocacy Retreat sponsored by the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County (Pennsylvania). The trial, which lasted six weeks, garnered national media attention because it centered around student protests and free speech on Oberlin’s college campus, including the potential responsibility and liability of colleges and universities for that speech. Judge John Miraldi, attorney Lee Plakas, and Academy member and panel host John Gismondi participated in the discussion before more than 200 Academy members.

Holman is a business litigator who defends litigation and class actions, including matters involving commercial disputes, unfair and deceptive consumer sales practices, fraud, violations of statutory law, employment law, and workers’ compensation issues. As lead counsel, he provides customized legal services throughout Ohio and the Midwest to his national, state, and local clients.
