Zulme Calloway v. Calloway Entertainment, U.S. District Court, Los Angeles. We represented the widow of famed entertainer, Cab Calloway. We successfully brought suit in the U.S. District Court, Los Angeles, to recapture all of Cab Calloway’s intellectual property rights (copyrights, trademarks, licenses, etc.) that had been transferred by Cab Calloway just prior to his death.
Elie Harfouche v. Haifa Wehbe, U.S. District Court, New Jersey.
We obtained the dismissal of this multimillion dollar lawsuit brought against our client, the well-known Lebanese entertainer, Haifa Wehbe. We defended this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court, Camden, New Jersey.
Marco Valdivia v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. District Court, Los Angeles. We successfully brought suit against the U.S. government to reverse the government’s decision to deport our client. Our client mistakenly believed he was a U.S. citizen and had admitted that he voted in a U.S. presidential election. On this basis, the government sought to remove our client, a newlywed father with several children, from the U.S. where he had lived since early childhood.
