Satterlee Stephens Obtains Dismissal of Copyright Claim and Sanctions Against “Copyright Troll”


In a recent appearance before U.S. District Judge Jesse M. Furman, SDNY, Satterlee partner Mark Lerner and associates Alana Newman and Peggy Chen defended their client against an alleged copyright infringement claim.  Not only was the matter dismissed, but the attorney who brought the claim was sanctioned for his conduct in the litigation in a decision that added to the “growing body of law” regarding sanctioning a litigious attorney who has been called a “copyright troll.”
