“Law360’s Weekly Verdict: Legal Lions & Lambs”
Gerard Fox Law reigned supreme on the legal lions list this week when the Ninth Circuit revived a client’s copyright suit against Taylor Swift, while Lewis Brisbois ended up among the legal lambs after client Rex Medical was hit with a $33.7 million medical device defect verdict.
…Thompson & Knight LLP rounds out this week’s legal lions list. The law firm secured its spot on the list Tuesday when the Seventh Circuit ruled that an obese BNSF Railway Co. applicant can’t claim the transport titan violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it held back a job offer over concerns about future possible health conditions related to his weight. BNSF is represented by Bryan P. Neal and Stephen F. Fink of Thompson & Knight LLP.
