Jeff Nye spent more than two years supporting a model bill to protect Ohioans from frivolous lawsuits that chill their First Amendment rights of free speech. Senate Bill 206 was introduced on Oct. 3, 2017.

Jeff is quoted in the article announcing the Bill. Read the full article here.

"Anonymous speech is an important, long-held American tradition that needs protection in the online space, said Cincinnati attorney Jeffrey Nye, who has represented multiple defendants in such cases.

"James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay wrote 'The Federalist Papers' under the pseudonym 'Publius.' Benjamin Franklin wrote as 'Silence Dogood,'" Nye said. "The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that anonymous speech is not just protected, but hugely important."

Jeff Nye is a partner at the law firm of Stagnaro, Saba & Patterson, where he concentrates in commercial litigation (including closely held corporation litigation, Uniform Commercial Code litigation, and injunction work), construction litigation, and real estate litigation. His pro bono work is focused on First Amendment defenses of defamation claims, and foreclosure defense and mediation.

Prior to joining the firm, Jeff served as a law clerk for Judge Beth A. Meyers of the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas. During his tenure as her law clerk, Judge Myers was designated by the Chief Justice as one of the Ohio's eight Commercial Docket judges, and Jeff assisted with the implementation of Ohio's Commercial Docket program.

Jeff was born and raised on a miniature donkey farm, and now resides in Anderson Township with his wife, two daughters, and two dogs. Jeff was appointed to the Anderson Township Board of Zoning Appeals in 2018 and serves as its chair for the 2021 term. He previously served as Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Autism Society of Greater Cincinnati.


In October 2016, Jeff served as a panelist at the Ohio State Bar Association 2016 Law and Media Conference help in Columbus, Ohio. Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPs) are civil complaints that discourage people from speaking out about public matters. Panelist, Jeff Nye, discusses SLAPPs and Ohio's legislative and judicial efforts to create anti-SLAPP remedies.
