Legal Fallout of Tiger Woods Saga

I am a contributor to the Legal Broadcast Network, which was co-founded by environmental torts and consumer protection lawyer Jan Schlictmann, and I was interviewed this week by Scott Drake about a story that Rick also discussed in a different forum: the legal fallout of the Tiger Woods saga. Here's the interview:

Professor McCann:

I would not even try to debate you regarding Tiger Woods' Constitutional rights and the way that he has execised them. I would point out however that he is now - - and will continue to be - - tried in the Court of Public Opinion where Constitutional rights tend to blur a bit.

The "tabloid media" - - to include Internet outlets - - do not care about his obligation or his non-obligation to speak to the police. They care about his "celebrity status" and any possible way that he may be using that status to get better treatment from law enforcement officials than Joe Sixpack on the streets. No offense, but arguments based in legal theory have no weight here.

A key issue in the case is that Tiger Woods is reportedly the world's first billion dollar athlete. He made the vast majority of that money pitching products to the public. Now that the public - - as represented by the tabloid medai - - wants to kow something about him, he demands privacy.

I think a large part of the mood of the public at the moment is: "If privacy is all that important to you, give the money back..."
