  • Currently representing major companies who were users of U.S. rail freight services asserting antitrust claims against BNSF, CSX, Norfolk Southern and Union Pacific. The central allegation is that defendants colluded to use fuel surcharges as a means to impose inflated rail freight rates from July 2003 through December 2008. The cases are pending in various federal courts around the country.
  • Currently representing a putative class of individuals who claim they paid ATM access fees at anticompetitively high levels as a result of an unlawful agreement among the dominant ATM networks and the nation’s largest retail banks.
  • Obtained a complete defense jury verdict of no-infringement on four asserted patents for defendants Verizon Wireless and Novatel Wireless in a patent infringement matter relating to mobile hand-off and relay technology.
  • On behalf of Songkick, sued Ticketmaster and Live Nation for antitrust violations in the artist presale ticketing services market.  After completing fact and expert discovery, defeated the defendants’ summary judgment motion in its entirety (which no antitrust plaintiff had previously been able to accomplish against Ticketmaster) and subsequently resolved the case two weeks before trial with a $110 million settlement payment and acquisition of Songkick’s assets for a confidential amount.
  • Successfully defended Barnes & Noble in class action alleging various violations of the Labor Code, including failure to provide meal breaks and rest breaks and failure to pay overtime. The Court denied certification in its entirety.
  • For Mattel, obtained order from Ninth Circuit vacating verdicts of liability for alleged trade-secret misappropriation and damages award of more than $170 million; separately defeated antitrust claims purportedly worth $3 billion and RICO claims with similar alleged stakes; and obtained summary judgment on trade-secrets claims allegedly worth $1 billion.
