Firm wins copyright lawsuit defending multi-platinum recording artist and others, and secures sanctions award

In a copyright infringement suit filed in the federal court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania concerning a song from a multi-platinum album, Jonathan D. Davis P.C. obtained summary judgment in favor of its clients.

During the litigation, the firm achieved many other victories for its clients. In response to our motion to dismiss filed at the beginning of the case, the Court dismissed plaintiff's constructive trust and accounting claims. The Court next granted our motion to substantially limit the scope of damages for the purported infringement. The Court later struck portions of the expert report submitted by plaintiff's damages expert. And the Court sanctioned opposing counsel and ordered him to pay our clients tens of thousands of dollars.
