On Friday, February 5, 2018, Judge Madeline Cox Arleo issued an order upholding four of six counts in Noble v. Samsung Electronics America, Inc. This first-of-its-kind litigation challenges Samsung's battery life assertions for the Gear S smartwatch.  Judge Arleo’s decision [hyperlink] follows a long and unsuccessful appeal by Samsung which sought to force Plaintiff Noble to arbitrate his claims rather than pursue them on behalf of the class.  The litigation will now proceed with discovery and active litigation.  Should you have any questions about this matter, please contact William Anderson, Esq. at 202-789-3960 or wanderson@cuneolaw.com. 02/05/2018.

On January 23, 2018, the U.S. District Court in San Francisco denied, in principal part, a motion for summary judgment filed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation (Sikorsky) in the four-year-long Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation concerning Sikorsky’s small business subcontracting plan.   The Court ruled that the case would go to trial as to whether information being withheld by DOJ and Sikorsky could continue to be withheld from public view on the basis that its release would reveal trade secrets. CGL’s client, the American Small Business League (ASBL) has been seeking an unredacted version of Sikorsky’s small business subcontracting plan since August 2013.   The Court held that disputed issues of fact require a trial, and that DOJ and Sikorsky were not entitled to a judgment based on the factual record presented to the Court. 01/23/2018.
