Representative Cases

  • In re National Football League’s “Sunday Ticket” Antitrust Litigation (C.D. Cal.). Kevin plays a leading role on the team appointed by the Court to serve as co-lead counsel for the plaintiffs in this multidistrict class action case, and he led the successful defeat of the NFL’s motions to exclude the plaintiffs’ economic experts, and won a crucial discovery motion against the defendants. In this case that has the potential to impact all aspects of sports broadcasting, plaintiffs challenge the structure behind Sunday Ticket, including the elimination of competition among the NFL’s teams and the NFL’s decision to offer Sunday Ticket to DIRECTV on an exclusive basis. The case is presently being prepared for trial following a landmark victory for the plaintiffs in the Ninth Circuit. 933 F.3d 1136 (9th Cir. 2019)
  • McFalls, et al. v. 38th Judicial District, et. al, 4 MD 2021 (Pa. Commonwealth Ct.). Kevin is a core member of the team in this original jurisdiction class action currently pending in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court. Along with the ACLU of Pennsylvania, Kevin represents criminal court defendants who have been assessed duplicate costs after a conviction or plea. The class was successfully certified in April 2023. The case is ongoing.
  • Shakespeare Globe Trust v. Kultur Int’l Films, Inc. (D.N.J.). On behalf of the Shakespeare Globe Trust, which owns and operates the Globe Theatre in London, Kevin successfully briefed, argued, and secured a preliminary injunction against a New Jersey-based content distributor after the distributor was found to be distributing the Globe’s intellectual property without consent. The case soon settled with the defendant agreeing to all relief sought by the Shakespeare Globe Trust.
