Partner August T. Horvath was quoted in the CBS News article “In juicy battle with Coke, Supreme Court sides with POM.” The article discusses how the Supreme Court unanimously found in favor of POM Wonderful in its battle against beverage giant Coca-Cola, ruling that the juice maker can bring false advertising claims against its bigger competitor. Mr. Horvath explained that it's unclear if there will be a flood of lawsuits after the ruling. "There aren't that many juice companies out there that want to start this kind of war. POM is a bit of a maverick in its dedication to this one fruit. What the juice companies are more concerned about is if it will embolden the consumer class-action case."
