SmithKline Beecham Corp. v. Abbott Laboratories, 740 F.3d 471 (9th Cir. 2013)


Our attorneys represented GlaxoSmithKline in this landmark case with potentially far-reaching implications for future LGBT rights cases. The Ninth Circuit held that the Constitution forbids the use of peremptory strikes to preclude gays and lesbians from jury service based on their sexual orientation and that GSK was entitled to a new trial because Abbott improperly struck a juror on this basis.
