Experience

Mark has prepared and argued a number of appeals in a range of matters, including:

  • Briefed and argued Second Circuit appeal challenging the constitutionality of increasing a defendant’s sentence on the basis of charges as to which he was acquitted.
  • Drafted amicus briefs in support of certiorari in U.S. Supreme Court cases implicating issues of federal jurisdiction and antitrust law.
  • Argued Seventh Circuit appeal seeking expungement of federal defendant’s judicial records.
  • Prepared successful objections to a Magistrate Judge’s report recommending certification of a nationwide consumer fraud class under Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 23(b)(2) and (3).
  • Secure dismissal of putative class action alleging unfair and deceptive trade practices under state and federal law, where plaintiffs alleged deliberate short-weighting of products manufactured by defendant, misrepresentation of the products’ net weight, and use of deceptive packaging.
  • Drafted Second Circuit brief seeking reversal of post-settlement modification of federal consent decree, arguing that modification failed to satisfy the requirements of Rule 60(b)(5) and, alternatively, that DOJ was judicially estopped from seeking the modification.
  • Prepared pro bono appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, alleging violation of a suspect’s Miranda rights and seeking suppression of physical and testimonial evidence.
