Represented the owner of the rights to the famous Dick and Jane reading primer, a Pearson Education subsidiary, in trademark and copyright litigation against the authors of Yiddish With Dick and Jane. When efforts to settle the case prior to filing a complaint were not successful, we filed a complaint against the New York based publisher in California where the individual authors and illustrators resided. In response to the defendants request to transfer the case to New York, we agreed provided the parties entered into non-binding mediation. This creative approach ended successfully.
