Fenwick & West Successfully Defends Symantec in Statutory Unfair Competition Class Action

June 01, 2006

Fenwick defended Symantec in California state court in a consumer class action for statutory unfair competition (California Business & Professions Code Section 17200, et seq.) and false advertising (California Business & Professions Code Section 17500, et seq.) related to its WinFaxPRO software. After limited discovery, the matter settled on a non-class basis with no payment to the purported class. After settlement, the team defeated plaintiffs’ motion for attorneys’ fees, and plaintiffs’ counsel received no fees.

The Fenwick litigation team was led by Rodger Cole, Jennifer Kelly and Emmett Stanton.
