Doss Quoted in ABC, CNN, USA Today and Others on WikiLeaks Founder's Arrest
In early April 2019, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested on charges of conspiracy. April Doss, chair of the Firm’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Practice and former National Security Agency attorney, is quoted throughout several news sources discussing the potential implications of the arrest.
In ABC News, April said: "The indictment is really clear that it’s an indictment for computer crimes, not for journalism."
April’s commentary continues in this USA Today article. "I think the top line takeaway from this is: journalism is not a crime, but hacking is," she said. "What we see in the indictment is the Department of Justice being very careful to draw that distinction and make clear that the indictment is not for anything that he published. The indictment really centers around the allegation that he was conspiring to hack into Department of Defense computers."
