Case Highlights

Helping a friend and making new law. David has extensive experience litigating all kinds of cases, from landlord-tenant disputes to complex antitrust and securities law matters. One case that stands out is an antitrust action brought by local entrepreneur Dan Harkins. He represented Harkins Theatres as lead counsel in a complex-and very successful-antitrust litigation that spanned many years. It involved numerous federal court decisions and published opinions, including the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' decision in Harkins Amusement Enterprises, Inc. V. General Cinema Corp., 850 F.2d 477 (9th Cir. 1988), a case that established new law in the Ninth Circuit.

Handling complex, high-profile cases. David has also been involved in numerous other complex and sometimes high-profile cases. One such case was a defamation action he filed against Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy, who was alleged to have libelled David's client on Liddy's nationally syndicated radio talk show. David currently continues to represent clients in complex matters but also specializes in commercial dispute resolution and employment law.
