Fenwick litigation partner Rodger Cole represented Twitter in its first significant litigation. Hall of Fame baseball manager Tony La Russa sued Twitter, asserting violations of La Russa’s right of publicity. La Russa attempted to hold Twitter responsible for an unknown user’s alleged misuse of La Russa’s name and likeness. The case was resolved without any restrictions on Twitter’s business.
