We represent the PGA TOUR in an antitrust lawsuit filed by 11 professional golfers who left the PGA TOUR and joined LIV Golf. We defeated plaintiffs’ motion for a temporary restraining order seeking to force the PGA TOUR to allow them to play in the FedExCup Playoffs. We also recently won a motion to compel subpoena compliance from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and its Governor, Yassir Al-Rumayyan.
We are defending Netflix against a 12-patent case Broadcom filed in the Central District of California. We successfully transferred the case to the Northern District of California, where it is pending before Judge James Donato. We successfully obtained rulings dismissing six of the patents as abstract under Alice, with an additional patent invalidated during inter partes review proceedings before the PTAB. We are also defending Netflix against a separate 5-patent case originally brought by Broadcom in the Eastern District of Texas. A three-judge Federal Circuit panel ordered the district court to transfer the case to the Northern District of California where it is now proceeding before Judge Edward Chen. After the transfer, the firm achieved a stay of all district court proceedings pending inter partes review proceedings before the PTAB.
