Dana represents media clients in a wide range of content-related matters. She began her legal career as the First Amendment Fellow in the New York Times Company’s legal department, where she counseled reporters on legal issues and litigated defamation and access cases. She then served as a law clerk to the Honorable I. Leo Glasser of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
Prior to joining LSKS, Dana was a senior associate with WilmerHale in London, where her practice involved international litigation and arbitration and pro bono work with the Media Legal Defence Initiative, assisting journalists in the developing world.
Coleman v. County of Suffolk (E.D.N.Y. 2016). Dana and Dave Schulz represented Newsday and News 12 in the successful effort to unseal an internal affairs report and other records filed in a lawsuit against the Suffolk County Police Department by the estate of a woman killed by her abusive boyfriend. The court ordered the files released, citing the public’s right to access court records under both the First Amendment and common law.
Fireclean, LLC v. Tuohy (E.D. Va. 2016). Dana, together with Jay Ward Brown and Jeremy Kutner, obtained dismissal of defamation claims brought by a gun-oil manufacturer against a blogger who had published several reports regarding a controversy over the manufacturer’s product. The court held that the Virginia-based plaintiff could not hale the Arizona blogger into court in its home state, reasoning that precedent in pre-internet defamation cases does not control on jurisdictional questions involving internet publishers.
