NRA v. Ackerman, Virginia

Ackerman’s Memorandum in Support of Motion for Protective Order

August 14, 2019

Filing Summary

This brief presents Ackerman’s request for a protective order to prevent Ackerman’s documents and proprietary information from falling into the hands of Brewer & Associates.

Key Points

  • Ackerman notes that Brewer & Associates is not just a law firm, but also has a “public relations unit” that “directly competes” with Ackerman.  Ackerman claims that “Wiliam Brewer’s litigation strategy was to end [Ackerman’s] contract with the NRA and pick up the public relations work for his own law firm.” (p.2-3).
