Scott Hervey and Josh Escovedo discuss two topics in this episode of The Briefing. First, they talk about the defamation lawsuit that GEO Group, a private prison and detention center operator, brought against Netflix over the show "Messiah," which was just dropped. Then midway through the episode, they move on to New York's new post-mortem Right of Publicity law, which protects "performers" and "personalities."
