Gary Resnick Quoted in Law360

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – April 6, 2020 – Gary Resnick, current Commissioner and former Mayor of Wilton Manors, FL, attorney and shareholder in GrayRobinson’s Fort Lauderdale law firm office and chair of the firm’s communications, broadband & new media law practice group, was quoted in the Law360 article, "Telecom Industry, Localities Clash Over COVID-19 Hurdles."

"That's the one thing that frustrates local governments," Resnick said. "There's been no issues with denial to sites, denial of access or anything like that," Resnick added. "The [jurisdictions] that have to do in-person reviews of permit applications may be slower or may have challenges. But it's still going on." Read the full article here. (subscription required)
