Jonathan Handler was quoted in an article, "Injunction Secures Internet Access for Nonprofits" in the Fairfield County Business Journal. In the article, Handler describes the ongoing effort by Day Pitney to prevent Sprint Corporation from shutting off broadband access to more than 300,000 low-income and disadvantaged users plus schools, libraries, and other non-profits across the country. The Massachusetts Superior Court granted a 90-day preliminary injunction requiring Sprint to continue to provide broadband service, among other pre-judgment relief. Handler states "there is a notion out there that we're all out there at high speed. But large portions of the population, for financial reasons, are not." Those who rely on the services of the nonprofits the firm represents would be at "a real disadvantage" if broadband does not remain available.

Michael Furey and Dennis LaFiura were mentioned in an article, "Horizon Can't Keep OMNIA Docs Hidden From Challengers," in Law360. Day Pitney is representing seven New Jersey hospitals in a lawsuit against Horizon Healthcare, relating to its new, two-tiered health plan called OMNIA. Judge Robert P. Contillo found on April 22 that financial analysis of the impact upon two hospitals of Omnia conducted by Horizon is "highly relevant" information and must be produced during discovery. He also found that Horizon failed to establish the document as privileged attorney work, privileged attorney-client communications or a confidential self-critical analysis.
