Partner Kannon Shanmugam recently presented arguments before the Supreme Court in four cases in the span in two months. In Henry Schein Inc. et al. v. Archer, the Court will address whether the Federal Arbitration Act permits a court to decline to enforce an agreement delegating questions of arbitrability to an arbitrator. And in Republic of Sudan v. Harrison, the Court will decide whether the victims of the U.S.S. Cole bombing properly served the Republic of Sudan in their lawsuit seeking to hold Sudan responsible as a state sponsor of terrorism. On December 4, 2018, Kannon argued Helsinn Healthcare v. Teva Pharmaceuticals, and the Court will consider whether an inventor’s sale of an invention to a third party that is obligated to keep the invention confidential qualifies as prior art under the patent laws. On January 7, 2019, Kannon argued Obduskey v. McCarthy & Holthus LLP, and the Court will decide the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act applies to an entity that merely initiates the enforcement of a security interest on property through non-judicial foreclosure proceedings.
