Bridges, et al v. Geringer, et al: CPM represents a group of investors who lost tens of millions of dollars in an alleged Ponzi scheme spearheaded by John Geringer, Chris Luck, and Keith Rode.  Plaintiffs allege that Defendants leveraged their stature in the Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz, CA communities to induce them to invest their money in the GLR Growth Fund, promising returns through diversified, long-term growth investment strategies.  Instead, the money was invested in two privately held technology startups or paid to Geringer, Luck, and Rode.

San Jose, et al v. Office of the Commissioner of Baseball and Allan Huber “Bud” Selig: CPM represents the City of San Jose against Major League Baseball, alleging antitrust violations and challenging the continued viability of baseball’s antitrust exemption.  In its lawsuit, San Jose asserts that, pursuant to an illegal exclusive territorial rights agreement, Major League Baseball has refused to permit the A’s to relocate from Oakland to San Jose, purportedly because the San Francisco Giants “own” the territorial rights to San Jose.  As a result, Major League Baseball has prevented the A’s from exercising an Option Agreement with the City of San Jose and refused to grant permission for the A’s to relocate to San Jose.

Vulcan Warbirds Inc. v. The Collings Foundation, et al: CPM represents Vulcan Warbirds against The Collings Foundation and Auctions America, among others, in a dispute arising out of the failure of Defendants to deliver to Warbirds an authentic, World War II German Panzer IV Tank.  Vulcan Warbirds acquires rare military vehicles and planes and has them displayed as part of the Flying Heritage Collection, a museum located in Everett, WA.  Various World War II tanks form the centerpiece of the collection that utilizes the Flying Heritage Collection tank arena.  In July 2014, Vulcan Warbirds purchased the Panzer IV tank, once part of the famous Littlefield Collection of tanks in Portola Valley, CA.  When Defendants refused to deliver the tank, CPM obtained a temporary restraining order and later an injunction preserving Vulcan Warbirds’ right to obtain possession of the tank.
