Partner Lee S. Brenner was quoted in the Law360 article "Attorneys React To High Court's Copyright Attorney's Fees Ruling." Mr. Brenner commented on the likelihood of Wiley having to pay its opponent's attorney’s fees.
"In reviewing the Supreme Court's opinion, it is clear that the chances that Wiley will be hit with having to pay the other side's attorneys' fees are just about nil. In making its decision, the district court already went through all of the appropriate factors that the Supreme Court identified today, laid out its reasoning in great detail, and determined that Wiley was not required to pay the other party's attorney's fees. There is no reason to think that the district court will reach a different conclusion now, and the United States Supreme Court explicitly mentioned that it was not intimating that Wiley should pay the opponent's fees.”
