Cochrane Prevails Against Open Text Corporation

June 27th, 2017 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized

Today the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an order in Cochrane v. Open Text Corp., Case No. 15-16322, affirming the district court’s judgment confirming Kevin Cochrane’s arbitration victory against Open Text.  Jeff Faucette represented Mr. Cochrane throughout the case, including the arbitration and hearing, the district court proceedings before the Honorable William Alsup, and in the Ninth Circuit.  Open Text was represented by a team of attorneys from Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and Cooley LLP.  The arbitrator ruled in Mr. Cochrane’s favor and awarded him more than $450,000 in damages, fees, and expenses.  Open Text challenged this award at the district court level and lost in a sternly worded order by Judge Alsup.  Open Text then appealed to the Ninth Circuit and lost again in a summary disposition by the court.  Copies of the trial and appellate court orders are available here:
