People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals v. Winograd

January 24, 2019

(Alameda County Superior Court, January 24, 2019)

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sought to learn the identity of confidential whistleblower informants who had corroborated reporting by Citizen Journalist/Blogger/Activist Nathan Winograd concerning PETA’s practices of killing animals. Winograd successfully asserted his right to protect the confidentiality of his sources under the Reporter’s Shield of the California Constitution and the Reporter’s Privilege.

We are grateful to the Press Freedom Defense Fund for its support of Winograd’s defense in this important precedent-setting case.
