Jeremy A. Kutner

Jeremy represents media clients in a wide range of content-related matters, including defamation, access to courts and sealed documents, intellectual property, and freedom of information laws.

Prior to joining LSKS, he was the First Amendment Fellow at the New York Times Company, where he counseled reporters on legal issues, litigated and argued access, reporter’s privilege, and public records cases in state and federal court, and provided prepublication review. He also served as a law clerk to the Honorable Janet C. Hall of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut and was an associate at WilmerHale in New York. While in law school, Jeremy co-directed the Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic at Yale, where he successfully argued before the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

Jeremy has also worked as a news reporter before and during his legal career, and his articles have been published in The New York Times and The Christian Science Monitor from around the U.S. and countries including China, Indonesia, South Africa, Kosovo, and Colombia. He previously lived in Guangzhou, China as a fellow with the Yale-China Association.

Notable Matters

Fireclean, LLC v. Tuohy (E.D. Va. 2016). Jeremy, together with Jay Ward Brown and Dana Green, 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.
