This article, about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to review a case involving the first-sale doctrine, quotes New York Supreme Court and appellate litigation partner Josh Rosenkranz as counsel to Supap Kirtsaeng.

Orrick's Rosenkranz, who will likely argue on behalf of Kirtsaeng, said that the 100-year-old first-sale doctrine should also apply to foreign-made goods. "This notion that we would give foreign made goods greater protection than local goods makes no sense at all to me," he said.
