Doug Mirell, a litigation partner at Greenberg Glusker with extensive First Amendment experience, provides featured commentary around whether judges should engage in social media activity in the article, "California Supreme Court issues social media rules for judges," published by the Southern California Record on May 5, 2021.


“Judges ought to be affirmatively discouraged as I believe they have been in the past from using social media at all,” said Doug Mirell, an attorney with Greenberg Glusker law firm in Los Angeles. “Whether they will encourage people to comment favorably about them or not, that possibility clearly exists and that's the raison d'etre for social media platforms in the first place, which is to encourage the exchange of communications.”
