New Breaking Appellate Litigation

Hogan Lovells' Appellate practice is currently representing Google in a landmark case (Garcia v. Google Inc
.) that is likely to generate repercussions across the entire tech industry and set a precedent for future decisions concerning free speech and copyright infringement. The merits panel in this case has issued a sweeping injunction directing Google and YouTube to take down a film — “Innocence of Muslims” — across all their platforms and prevent it from being uploaded again.
Hogan Lovells' Neal Katyal, Dominic Perella, and Sean Marotta successfully sought en banc
rehearing of the case, and Katyal will argue the case before an en banc
panel of the Ninth Circuit on December 15, 2014.
