Q: What’s the most interesting trial you’ve worked on and why?

A: The Fox v. Aereo case was probably the most interesting case in the sense that we were representing the upstart defendant, dealing with novel copyright issues, fighting the major television
networks and studios and challenging the status quo. There was so much attention paid to it that the two-day preliminary injunction hearing had to be simulcast to a second courtroom to handle the overflow of press and spectators. It made for great theater, and it was particularly enjoyable because we had success at the District Court and before the Second Circuit. In much of the press, the client was portrayed as the “black hat,” which also presented some interesting challenges. The matter ended at the U.S. Supreme Court with a decision that still has me scratching my head a bit. I think that Scalia’s dissent is analytically far sounder than the majority’s opinion, but I suppose that even though Fish was not lead counsel at the Supreme Court and I did not handle the oral argument, few would believe me if I claim to be entirely objective in the matter.
