Appellate: Class Action re Alleged Price-Fixing

Mar 1st, 2014
Experience

Conducted a mock appellate argument on behalf of the defendants-appellees in an appeal before the Sixth Circuit. A panel of former federal judges reviewed as-filed appellate briefing and heard mock oral arguments. Information on the judges’ analysis of, and reactions to, the briefs and oral arguments was gathered through private questionnaires and a focus group discussion with the judges. The judges’ feedback, which was analyzed by ThemeVision and discussed with the trial team, influenced the ultimate presentation to the Sixth Circuit. Result: ThemeVision’s client prevailed, with the Sixth Circuit affirming the district court’s summary judgment.
