This episode is on defending “high profile” cases in the court of public opinion. How and when should an attorney allow a client to speak to media? The case of Joel Magid is an interesting one. In September 2016 he took to Facebook to publicly apologize for purportedly sexually assaulting a woman who he didn’t remember sexually assaulting. The post went internationally viral and he retained Arnold Law to help him out.

Here’s a breakdown of the interesting social and legal issues involving this unique case. Hear about the subsequent KGW-Portland interview of Joel that went viral for a different reason: the anchor’s insensitive questions post-interview regarding another accuser.

Joel’s attorneys Mike Arnold and Lissa Casey say that they don’t necessarily believe Joel Magid when he “confessed” to sexual assault.  Joel was blackout drunk at the time and doesn’t remember the encounter.  He based his apology on what the accuser said happened.  This is a very interesting case for sure.  Find out some of the details in this episode.
