Law360, New York (November 23, 2011, 4:50 PM EST) -- Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP's E. Joshua Rosenkranz helped Facebook Inc. fight off a challenge to a $65 million settlement with ex-classmates of Mark Zuckerberg who claimed the Facebook founder stole their idea for the social networking site, earning him a spot on Law360's list of Appellate MVPs.
Rosenkranz argued on behalf of Facebook before the Ninth Circuit in the high-stakes case in January, and convinced a three-judge panel to rule in April that the agreement was valid and enforceable.
