Tell us about your top U.S. Supreme Court or federal appeals court victory over the past year and how you and your team achieved the win.
Cozen O’Connor represented the appellant in Manhattan Community Access Corp. v. Halleck and won a groundbreaking First Amendment case at the U.S. Supreme Court in June 2019. The dispute centered on questions of private versus governmental activity and who can be sued under the First Amendment. The biggest challenge was convincing the court to grant certiorari.

Our short, focused reply brief reoriented the court to the core issues and dismantled respondent’s main arguments.
