Co-produced with the Government Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Wisconsin
Take a quick, hard-hitting look at three of the top, emerging issues you need to know from 2018 – cell tower regulations, administrative agency deference, and the First Amendment rights of public employees when they’re on the job.
Call me… maybe?
As cell service expands and looks toward a 5G future, providers are pushing for more towers to meet the growing needs of mobile communities. How do right-of-way ordinances and the FCC’s Small Cell Order affect the powers of municipalities to approve or deny telecom providers’ petitions to use public lands and structures? Examine the regulation of these towers at the state and federal level with a review of new legislation and cases.
Like a prayer
The First Amendment guarantees certain protections, but how far do those protections extend? Look at how symbolic protests like taking a knee during the national anthem or religious practices like prayer during sporting events are producing legal challenges when teachers and coaches are involved.
The way we were
The courts’ traditional practice of deferring to agency interpretations of law seemingly comes to an end with the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling in Tetra Tech EC, Inc. v. Wisconsin Department of Revenue. So, what does this mean for review of agency decisions in Wisconsin? Hear from a panel of judges and prominent practitioners on how they are adapting with the court’s decision.
