Sagers Speaks About Book on Apple “eBooks” Case

C_SAGERS.jpgChris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, was invited to present at a meeting of the American University College of Law’s Business Law Faculty Workshop series. He spoke about his book “Apple, Antitrust, and Irony,” concerning the so-called Apple “eBooks” case of 2012-2013, a federal antitrust challenge to Apple and several publishing firms for fixing the price of eBooks. The workshop was moderated by the antitrust scholar Jonathan Baker of American University, who also provided a lengthy commentary on the manuscript. The book is forthcoming this fall from Harvard University Press.

US Supreme Court Records and Briefs Database

Faculty and students at Cleveland-Marshall have access to Gale’s U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs database. This database contains briefs and related documents from Supreme Court cases between 1832 and 1978. Previously, many of these briefs were not available through any of the library’s other legal databases, so this is a very useful for anyone doing research on older Supreme Court cases.

Access to this database is IP-authenticated for users connected to the law school’s computer network; faculty and students can also access the database while off campus by logging in with their CSU ID number and library PIN.
