Michael Best Partner Anthony Biller was quoted in Westlaw Journal Intellectual Property's article "Attorneys predict outcome of Allen v. Cooper" on November 20, 2019.
The U.S. Supreme Court will release its ruling over Allen v. Cooper, No. 18-877, oral argument held, 2019 WL 5788662 (U.S. Nov. 5, 2019), before July 2020. Michael Best Partner Anthony Biller offers his predictions here.
“I predict the court will reverse the Fourth Circuit in Allen v. Cooper, return the booty to the author, and abrogate Florida Prepaid. I suspect that Justice Thomas will dissent and be in favor of affirming the Fourth Circuit, since he is the only remaining justice from the Florida Prepaid majority opinion and his original intent jurisprudence favors a more robust protection of state rights viz. the federal government,” said Anthony Biller.
