On March 11, 2022, the Firm obtained a complete victory in the California Court of Appeal for our client, a national airline. The Firm’s client was sued in state court for various contract and non-contract claims relating to the provision of in-flight entertainment. In the trial court, the Firm’s client first won summary adjudication on the non-contract claims because they were preempted by the Airline Deregulation Act (ADA). It then obtained a take-nothing jury verdict against the plaintiff on the remaining claims. The plaintiff appealed everything and the Firm successfully defeated the appeal.
The California Court of Appeal for the Second Appellate District affirmed the trial court’s summary judgment order and the jury’s take-nothing verdict. You can read the Court’s opinion here.
