Bloomberg BNA Speaks with Partner Lee S. Brenner on ‘Avatar’ Idea Submission Case
June 10, 2016

Bloomberg BNA turned to partner Lee S. Brenner in the article “California Supreme Court Could Weigh in on 'Avatar' Case” to explain idea submission claims and how California courts deal with such claims, whether they are styled as breach of express contract, breach of implied contract, fraud or breach of fiduciary duty claims. The context of the article relates to the recent decision in Ryder v. Lightstorm Entm't, Inc., 246 Cal. App. 4th 1064 (2016), which analyzed and rejected claims against James Cameron and his production company with respect to the move “Avatar.”
