Firm’s Continued Defense in Ibrahim Case Featured on Law360

The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court challenging McManis Faulkner’s Ninth Circuit victory in the case of Dr. Rahinah Ibrahim. In response, the McManis team filed a brief with the Supreme Court opposing the government’s petition, a filing recently featured in an article on Law360.

The article details the firm’s arguments in its brief, which stated in part “the government had engaged ‘in overzealous litigation to defend what it knew was a mistake’ by dragging out the case for nearly a decade.” The brief also explains that review from the Supreme Court would be premature, since the District Court will have to recalculate its attorney’s fee award no matter how the Supreme Court acted on the petition.
