Brown Rudnick Mentioned in Law360 Regarding an Additional Mark Cuban Amicus Brief
PUBLISHED ON: 09/21/2015
Law360 recently published an article titled, "Mark Cuban Urges Supreme Court To Review SEC Courts," which features Brown Rudnick's Kenneth Weckstein, Stephen Best, Alex Lipman, Justin Weddle and Ashley Baynham representing Mark Cuban.
From the article:
"In an amicus brief in support of Bebo, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks told the high court that the Seventh Circuit was wrong to conclude that Bebo can get a meaningful review of her grievances by going through the SEC’s tribunal first and then appealing any final commission order to a federal appeals court. Most people simply won't have the wherewithal to put up such a fight, which Cuban said would entail years of litigating in futility before the SEC before they get their day in federal court.
The Bebo amicus brief follows one Cuban filed last month in an D.C. Circuit case and another in the Eleventh Circuit last year, both in matters that deal with the SEC's court. Cuban had a made a fullcourt press on the agency ever since it brought and lost a suit against him accusing him of insider trading. That case ended in 2013 following a district court trial that famously saw Cuban celebrating on the courthouse steps after the jury exonerated him."
