Attorneys for Microsoft on Monday wrote that they “conditionally oppose” an effort from writers pursuing lawsuits against ChatGPT developer OpenAI in California to intervene in a group of lawsuits against OpenAI and Microsoft in the Southern District of New York.

Microsoft’s legal team, which includes attorneys at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath, emphasized that Microsoft is named as a defendant in the New York cases but not in the California cases.
