In 2012, Mr. Maher and a team of firm attorneys began defending Barnes & Noble in this closely watched lawsuit alleging Copyright and Lanham Act violations. In late 2015, summary judgment was granted dismissing the case in its entirety. See e.g., Kurt Orzeck, Barnes & Noble Beats IP Suit Over Cloud-Stored E-Books, Nov. 2, 2015 (subscription required). Plaintiff’s appeal, argued by Elizabeth Brannen before the Second Circuit on May 20, 2016, is pending.
