Rejection of $1 Billion Judgment Against Cox Communications Earns Litigators of the Week Recognition

1 minute read | February.23.2024

  • Litigation Daily recognized a Supreme Court and Appellate team led by partner Josh Rosenkranz for overturning a $1 billion judgment in a closely watched copyright infringement case against the music industry.
  • The American Lawyer publication cited the win in its Litigators of the Week feature. Siding with our arguments, the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a 2019 jury verdict that found Cox liable for vicarious copyright infringement for music piracy committed by its customers.
  • The case establishes important precedent in shaping the boundaries of secondary copyright infringement on the Internet.

In addition to Josh, Litigators of the Week recognized partners Chris Cariello and Mark Davies, associates Rachel Shalev and Alexandra Bursak and former associate Sheila Baynes.
