Hackney Publications, publisher of Sports Litigation Alert and Legal Issues in Collegiate Athletics, announced today the debut of the newsletter Legal Issues in High School Athletics(LIHSA).

 LIHSA will include up to a dozen case summaries, articles and analysis discussing the inherent legal issues affecting high school athletics.  The newsletter will be published on a bimonthly basis and will feature the writing of long-time sports law journalist Holt Hackney, publisher of Sports Litigation Alert and Legal Issues in Collegiate Athletics.  Joining Hackney as contributing editors are Daniel B. Fitzgerald, a Connecticut attorney and publisher of the blog Connecticut Sports Law (http://ctsportslaw.com), and Robert J. Romano, also a Connecticut attorney and President of the Romano Sports Agency.

“This is an emerging area of sports law, which is under served by the legal publishing industry,” said Hackney. “As editor of Sports Litigation Alert, I have noticed an innumerable number of coaches, athletic directors and school districts, finding themselves on the wrong end of a lawsuit.”

As attorneys practicing in the area of sports law, Fitzgerald and Romano believe the arrival of LIHSA is long overdue.

“There are a myriad of legal issues that arise in high school athletics on a daily basis.

LIHSA can increase awareness of these issues in the minds of high school coaches and athletic directors” said Fitzgerald.  “At the same time, LIHSA can be a valuable tool for superintendents, school board attorneys and law firms that practice in the area of sports law.”

Romano says that “LIHSA provides a unique resource, with a combination of current case summaries and practical legal articles relating to legal issues in high school athletics.”
