PHL Variable Insurance Co. v. The Sheldon Hathaway Family Trust

Public Citizen represented a life insurance professor and blogger, Joseph Belth, on his motions to intervene and unseal portions of the summary judgment record in a case brought by a life insurance company seeking to rescind a policy it issued on the basis of fraud. Mr. Belth argued that the public had both a common-law and First Amendment right of access to the summary judgment records. The court denied Mr. Belth’s motions.
