Radio Ink is pleased to announce that Judge Andrew P. Napolitano will address Forecast 2014, set for November 20, 2013 at the Harvard Club in New York. Judge Napolitano, Senior Judicial Analyst for Fox News Channel, offers a legal veteran's views on constitutional issues, including those that will be crucial to the future of the broadcast industry.
While on the bench from 1985 to 1995, he presided over more than 150 jury trials, and sat in all parts of the Superior Court -- criminal, civil, equity, and family. Napolitano has been with Fox News Channel since 1998 and provides legal analysis on FNC and Fox Business Network throughout the day, Monday through Friday.
Radio Ink Publisher Eric Rhoads said, "We are honored to have Judge Andrew Napolitano address this year's Forecast. His judicial background and experience will provide a unique perspective on a number of issues, including those impacting business and broadcasting, that are currently generating headlines."
Judge Napolitano has written seven previous books on the U.S. Constitution, two of which have been New York Times best sellers: Constitutional Chaos: What Happens When the Government Breaks Its Own Laws; The Constitution in Exile: How the Federal Government Has Seized Power by Rewriting the Supreme Law of the Land; A Nation of Sheep; Dred Scott’s Revenge: A Legal History of Race and Freedom In America; Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power and Deception in American History, and It's Dangerous to Be Right When the Government Is Wrong: The Case for Personal Freedom. His most recent book, Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom, argues that presidential violations of the Constitution 100 years ago have brought us many of our woes today. His eighth book, Suicide Pact: The Radical and Unconstitutional Expansion of Presidential Power After 9/11, will be published by New York University Law School as a law review article and by Harper Collins as a book in the spring of 2014.
Napolitano's works have also been published in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the New York Sun, the Baltimore Sun, the (New London) Day, the Seton Hall Law Review, the New Jersey Law Journal and The Newark Star-Ledger. His weekly newspaper column is seen by millions each week, and he lectures nationally on the Constitution, the rule of law, civil liberties in wartime, and human freedom. At Fox News Channel he's known for reporting on government overreach as the government infringes on both liberty and property.
Streamline Publishing EVP/Radio Deborah Parenti notes, "Judge Napolitano brings a constitutional focus to today's national debates. No matter where you sit, his insight should provoke thoughtful discussion at Forecast about how the radio industry will be affected by constitutional interpretation of issues faced today."
