Covington’s Robert Wick Named Am Law’s ‘Litigator of the Week’

December 5, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC, December 5, 2014 - For the second time this year, Am Law Litigation Daily named Covington & Burling’s Robert Wick as “Litigator of the Week.” Mr. Wick was honored for convincing the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit to reject Motorola's attempt to hold Samsung Electronics and several other of the world’s largest liquid crystal display manufacturers liable under U.S. antitrust law for allegedly fixing prices of mobile phone displays sold to Motorola’s foreign subsidiaries.
 
The ruling was significant because it affirms a district court order that threw out a $3.5 billion set of antitrust claims shortly before trial.

Issued on November 26, 2014, the Seventh Circuit ruling held that Motorola Mobility could not invoke U.S. antitrust law because its foreign subsidiaries had been the “immediate victims” of an alleged conspiracy to boost prices on liquid crystal display screens.

The Covington team representing Samsung Electronics also included Jeffrey Davidson, Robert Long, Derek Ludwin, John Playforth and David Zionts.
