ALFA International Client Seminar, Dana Point, California

In May 2017, the New York Times published its ground-breaking article about Harvey Weinstein, which detailed a litany of alleged sexual misconduct by one of Hollywood’s most powerful men. This article and subsequent high-profile cases ignited the #MeToo movement. The movement’s impacts continue to reverberate around the globe, as the issues of sexual harassment and assault in the workplace have been placed squarely in the spotlight. The #MeToo movement has created a complex and divisive array of legal, business, and social issues for multi-national corporations, small business and governmental entities, non-profits, educational institutions, legislative bodies, and the courts. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote that the rule of law requires “debate” on
public issues in an “un-inhibited, robust, and wide-open” manner. Synder v. Phelps, 131 S. Ct. 1207 (2011). Inspired by the Munk Debates, ALFA International panelists, including KMK Law Litigation Attorney, Sarah Vonderbrink Geiger, explored #MeToo and its impact on business, social equality, and due process of law.
