Jeremy recently represented a health care provider in federal and parallel state class actions that alleged tying and unlawful restraint of trade under the Sherman Act and Cartwright Act.

He filed an amicus brief in the United States Supreme Court on behalf of a nonprofit civil rights organization, arguing that a common hallway in an apartment complex should be protected under the Fourth Amendment.
