A CCA Blog*
Fellows of the College of Commercial Arbitrators are knowledgeable and highly skilled, and that arbitration parties and their advocates routinely entrust College Fellows with their most important disputes. A recent public report of an arbitration award issued by College Fellow Richard H. Silberberg provides a case in point. We are all familiar with the famous novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, written by Harper Lee, which was developed into an Academy Award-winning motion picture starring Gregory Peck in 1962. Lee wrote a sequel entitled Go Set a Watchman, which was published in 2015. It depicted the characters in To Kill a Mockingbird, but later in their lives. The arbitration proceeding, initiated by the filmmakers’ heirs and successors, concerned ownership of the motion picture remake and sequel rights, among other things.
