Fourth Annual Awards for Excellence in Journalism Honoring Floyd Abrams
The TimesCenter in NYC, on W. 41 St. between 7th and 8th Avenues
First amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams, who has defended press freedoms in some of the landmark cases of our time, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism’s annual awards gala on May 16. Abrams will be honored along with four outstanding graduates from the Class of 2010. The CUNY J-School will also celebrate its fifth anniversary as the only publicly supported graduate journalism school in the Northeast.
A partner in the firm of Cahill Gordon & Reindel, Abrams is perhaps best known for representing The New York Times in its publication of the Pentagon Papers in 1971. More recently, his argument in an amicus curiae brief was upheld last year when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporations and unions have the same free speech rights as individuals to speak out publicly to influence elections. He is currently representing the owners of the Washington City Paper in a $2 million lawsuit filed by Washington Redskins owner Daniel M. Snyder over alleged misstatements in stories that ran in the weekly newspaper.
Past honorees at the Awards for Excellence in Journalism presentations were Charlie Rose, Barbara Walters, and Tom Brokaw. Money raised at the dinner goes exclusively to funding scholarships for deserving students.
