UPDATED: Public Forum in NYC Discussing MMA Legalization

I thought the Bloody Elbow community might want a heads up on a public event being held in Manhattan in a few weeks.Originally scheduled for January 26th, the event has been moved to February 9th due to the inclement weather in the area.

The New York County Lawyer's Association is putting on a forum where select panelists will discuss the legal and regulatory issues relating to MMA legalization, as well as the potential economic impact the sport could have in New York if it is legalized.

If you read this, live in the area, and decide you want to attend, be sure to RSVP beforehand to dlamb@nycla.org.

WHERE: NYCLA Home of Law - 14 Vesey Street, New York, NY

WHEN: Wednesday, February 9th at 6pm.

WHO: The panel will be made up of the following individuals.

Joseph M. DeGuardia, Esq., owner of Star Boxing, a boxing promotional company, and president of the Boxing Promoters Association.

Michael J. DiMaggio, Esq., Collins, McDonald & Gann, P.C.

Kurt Emhoff, Esq., attorney, Kasowitz, Benson, Torres & Friedman and licensed boxing manager

Paul Haberman, Esq., licensed boxing manager and chair, Entertainment, Media, Intellectual Property and Sports Law Committee's (EMIPS) Sports Law Subcommittee.
