Amicus Brief in Support of Appelants Joseph Berlinger, Crude Productions

Donaldson filed an Amicus Brief on behalf of the Writers Guild of America East, as well as 22 other industry organizations and individuals, who saw the court order that filmmaker Joe Berlinger turn over 600 hours of raw footage he shot while producing the documentary CRUDE to the Chevron Corperation so the corporation can defend itself from a class action suit, as a threat to the future of investigative documentaries.
