Kam Hing Enterprises, Inc. v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. et al.
Case No. 07 CV 2316 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 18, 2009), aff'd, 359 Fed.Appx. 235 (2d. Cir. 2010)
The Firm prevailed after trial, winning in excess of $2 million dollars for a copyright infringement claim brought on behalf of client Kam Hing Enterprises, Inc. Prior to trial on damages, in what the Court noted was a rare instance of granting summary judgment to a plaintiff on liability in a copyright infringement case, the Court found the copyrighted works at issue (quilts) strikingly similar, and defendants liable for copyright infringement. The Court rejected defendants' motion for summary judgment seeking a finding that Plaintiff's quilt design was not subject to copyright protection. This ruling was affirmed by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
