CLE International 2011 Film, Television & New Media Conference: Michael Kump Reviews Recent Developments in Contract Litigation

On January 27, 2011, Michael Kump spoke for the sixth year in a row at CLE International’s annual Film, Television & New Media Conference in Los Angeles.

Michael’s speech, entitled “Recent Developments in Contract Litigation,” examined recent federal and state cases concerning contract formation and interpretation in the entertainment industry. The speech also analyzed the Court’s ruling in the widely-publicized McCourt trial handled by Michael, in which the Court ruled in favor of KHIKS’s client, Jamie McCourt, in finding that the Marital Property Agreement signed by Mr. and Mrs. McCourt in 2004 is invalid and unenforceable because there was no mutual assent between them when they executed the contract.
