Oral Arguments set in MillerCoors v. Anheuser Superbowl corn syrup ad dispute – sadly, this case won’t be resolved by the big game.

The 7th Circuit has set oral argument in the beer made with corn syrup case of the century. We’ll post it once it is up. Currently the argument is set for Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. 

If you want to view it live, you can visit 219 S. Dearborn in Chicago and it will be in the Main Courtroom, Room 2721. 

For those following what was to be the trial of the matter in the ongoing District Court case that was not stayed while the appeal is pending, the District Court has pushed back the trial until sometime after the oral argument and definitely set time for waiting for the eventual opinion in the case. Here is the Court’s order on that issue:

Docket Text: ** TEXT ONLY ORDER **

 The court held a telephonic conference today with the parties appearing by counsel to discuss plaintiff’s counsel’s letter to the court advising the court of the Seventh Circuit’s scheduling of oral argument on what was to be the third day of trial in this case. As agreed by the parties, the court will STRIKE the pretrial submission deadlines, the final pretrial conference and the trial date. The court will endeavor to circulate possible trial dates later this summer and fall, with plans to reset the trial once the Seventh Circuit issues an opinion (or indicates that an opinion is forthcoming) on the appeal of the preliminary injunction order. Signed by District Judge William M. Conley on 1/24/2020. 

Ashley Brandt

Hi there! I’m happy you’re here. My name is Ashley Brandt and I’m an attorney in Chicago representing clients in the Food and Beverage, Advertising, Media, and Real Estate industries. A while back I kept getting calls and questions from industry professionals and attorneys looking for advice and information on a fun and unique area of law that I’m lucky enough to practice in. These calls represented a serious lack of, and need for, some answers, news, and information on the legal aspects of marketing and media. I've got this deep seeded belief that information should be readily available and that the greatest benefit from the information age is open access to knowledge... so ... this blog seemed like the best way to accomplish that. I enjoy being an attorney and it’s given me some amazing opportunities, wonderful experiences, and an appreciation and love for this work. I live in Chicago and work at an exceptional law firm, Goldstein & McClintock, with some truly brilliant people. Feel free to contact me at any time with any issues, comments, concerns… frankly, after reading this far, I hope you take the time to at least let me know what you think about the blog and how I can make it a better resource.
