Legal Hotline

The legal hotline is free for PNA members.LEGAL HOTLINE: (717) 703-3080
One of the PNA's most popular services to our members is the free Legal Hotline. PNA members may call the hotline with any legal questions.

PNA attorneys routinely provide members with advice on HIPAA, open records, the state Sunshine Act, use of independent contractors, libel, telemarketing, copyrights, the Pennsylvania Shield Law and legal advertising. Many reporters from PNA member newspapers rely on PNA's attorneys for quotes on stories involving legal issues.

PNA's Headlines & Deadlines electronic newsletter includes answers to legal questions in a "From the Hotline" column. 

You may also want to search for information by topic using the PNA Newspaper Handbook.

Members may also contact PNA’s Media Law Counsel directly via email at
