"Practical Guidance" on Federal Drone Law

Along with Michael Berger of Manatt Phelps & Phillips, LLC, and Patrick Sherman of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and our firm's very own expert on small uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS, otherwise known as "drones"), I was invited by LexisNexis to prepare a Practical Guidance piece on Federal Drone Law.

This includes not only a detailed breakdown of the regulations governing the use of drones, but also an examination of how drones and federal supremacy interact with legal issues traditionally reserved for the states, such as trespass, nuisance and privacy claims. You can download the whole report in .PDF format using this link:
