Brokered an advantageous settlement agreement for Washington University in St. Louis in a complex copyright infringement action. The case involved the University's acquisition of a film and media archive in 2001 consisting of various documentary film materials that were collected by the late Henry Hampton, the documentary filmmaker famous for his critically acclaimed television series on civil rights in America, "Eyes on the Prize." Six years after acquiring and housing the archive materials in the University's Film and Media Archive, the late Henry Hampton's media company sued the University in Boston, Massachusetts for copyright infringement, conversion and various other claims based on the University's possession and use of the archive. The firm immediately filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit and entered into settlement discussions that raised nuanced and novel questions of copyright law.
