On June 20, 2017, Joe was a speaker and panelist at a seminar entitled “Freedom of the Press: New Challenges in an Era of Distrust and Fake News.” Sponsored by the New Hampshire Supreme Court Society, the program drew an audience of lawyers, judges, professors, and journalists. Joe discussed some of the major First Amendment press cases decided during the last 100 years. He and Concord attorney Bill Chapman, who also spoke about press freedom, then responded to questions from moderator Joe McQuaid, publisher of the Manchester Union-Leader.
