Attorney Noel Sterett believes it is important for parties involved in a lawsuit to understand and consider how to handle public relations during the case. In this video, Noel shares some of the recommendations he often relays to his own clients, many of which have had lawsuits become newsworthy and attract media attention. This has often been the case for the churches and other religious organizations Noel represents in litigation involving the Religious Land Use & Institutionalized Persons Act, better known as RLUIPA.
