Saper Law Wins Motion to Dismiss Copyright Infringement Claims

Saper Law, LLC successfully presented a Motion to Dismiss on behalf of Illinois GOP and Candidate Roderick Drobinski, defeating the Plaintiff’s Copyright Infringement claims.  Saper Law demonstrated that dismissal of the federal claims was proper due to our clients’ fair use of the copyrighted work in a political parody, and U.S. District Judge James B. Zagel agreed.
