Reported Cases, etc.

Some recent cases include:

Yaqub vs. Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System – a federal matter in which I handled the mediation and federal damages claims (see 122 Cal. App. 4th 474, 18 Cal. Rptr. 3d 780, (2004) the successful state appeal handled by Charles Kagay).

Bay World Trading, Ltd. vs. Nebraska Beef, Inc., 101 Cal. App. 4th 135 (2002); my successful trial of a UCC commercial dispute and a successful appeal handled by Charles Kagay about a procedural issue on which attorneys’ fees turned.

Earlier published appellate decisions:

Energy Conservation, Inc. v. Heliodyne, Inc., 698 F.2d 386 (9th Cir. 1982); representing plaintiff and successful appellant, refining the sham exception to antitrust immunity.

Liew v. Official Receiver (Hong Kong), 685 F.2d 1192 (9th Cir. 1982 — settled advantageously in Singapore) also reported New York Times regarding the involvement of the Moscow Narodny Bank and the KGB, Feb. 16, 1986, p. 1: “Russians Sought U.S. Banks To Gain High-Tech Secrets”: “ ‘I always viewed it as a deliberate penetration by the K.G.B. of the American banking system,’ said Bartholomew Lee, a San Francisco lawyer involved in a civil case resulting from the effort.”

Bullock v. City and County of San Francisco, 221 Cal.App.3d 1072 (1990); in which Charles Kagay and I reversed five Superior Court judges in consolidated appeals on civil rights and administrative issues involved in rent control.

Symbolic Control vs. International Business Machines, 643 F. 2d 1339 (9th Cir. 1980); I second-chaired the trial with John Boone, and acted as principal attorney on the successful appellate briefs. The case settled advantageously after the winning appeal. See the excerpt from my related law review article below.
