Daily Journal “Top 100 Lawyers in California”
By Paul Hastings Professional
The Daily Journal also recognized Global Banking and Payment Systems partner Thomas Brown’s duo of victories for eBay subsidiaries Bill Me Later and Stubhub. The article highlighted the creative approach taken in Bill Me Later’s class action case around California law capping interest rates – which consisted of successfully having the case transferred from Southern California to Utah, leading directly to the case’s dismissal. The piece also outlined the importance for every company utilizing e-commerce throughout California of the dismissal of a class action against Stubhub for allegedly violating the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act, which prohibits merchants from requesting a customer’s personal information. “Extending Song-Beverly to e-commerce would undermine the efforts of merchants to protect consumers and themselves from credit card fraud,” Brown told the Daily Journal.
