  • David Kesselman and Amy Brantly won dismissal of a Telecommunications Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") case filed by Jalen Epps against grocery store chain Earth Fare, in the Central District of California. Judge James Otero dismissed the case without leave to amend holding that plaintiff did not successfully revoke consent to receive text messages and that even if she did, plaintiff failed to plausibly allege that Earth Fare’s messages were sent using an automatic telephone dialing system. The case is Jalen Epps v. Earth Fare, Inc., Case No. 2:16-cv-08221-SJO-SSx (C.D. Cal.).
  • David Kesselman, Amy Brantly and Kara McDonald, on behalf of their client ZA Central Registry, NPC ("ZACR"), succeeded in again defeating Plaintiff DotAfricaConnect Trust’s ("plaintiff DCA") second motion for preliminary injunction in Los Angeles Superior Court. This case arises out of a dispute over the award of the generic top level domain name .Africa. ZACR prevailed in the competition for .Africa but plaintiff DCA filed suit and sought to prevent ICANN (represented by Jones Day) from delegating .Africa to ZACR. The Court again denied plaintiff DCA’s request. Earlier, KBS succeeded in obtaining a dismissal of the claims against ZACR who is now an intervenor in the case. The case is DotConnectAfrica Trust v. Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, et al., Case No. BC607494 (L.A. Superior Court).
  • David Kesselman and Amy Brantly successfully obtained writ relief for a defendant law firm on a plaintiff’s Cartwright Act claim. After the Superior Court overruled a demurrer to the Cartwright Act claim, the Court of Appeal granted writ relief holding that the complaint failed to include allegations that are essential to a Cartwright Act claim, including the relevant market, market power within the relevant market, and harm to competition.
