This week the Social Law Library hosted a screening of Four Games in Fall, followed by a panel discussion and Q + A session. This award-winning film explores the highly topical issues of media manipulation, science for hire, and perversion of the legal system…all through the lens of the Deflategate scandal. The event was attended by approximately 70 guests.
Featuring interviews with NFLPA spokesperson George Atallah, New York Law School Professor Robert Blecker, Patriots Attorney Daniel L. Goldberg, MIT Professor John J. Leonard, Sports Illustrated Legal Analyst and UNH Law School Associate Dean Michael McCann, former ESPN reporter Jane McManus, Jim Morris, Editor of Pulitzer-Prize winning Center for Public Integrity, Attorney Jonathan Ruckdeschel, Author and Barstool Sports writer Jerry Thornton, and Suffolk University Professor Andrew E. Wilson.
