Fred Korematsu and His Fight for Justice

June 4, 2018

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, uprooting some 120,000 Japanese-Americans – two-thirds of them American citizens – from their homes on the West Coast and forcing them into concentration camps. Fred Korematsu refused to go. He was arrested and convicted of violating the Executive Order and related military proclamations. The reenactment of this seminal case, told through narration, reenactment of court proceedings, and historic documents and photographs, was developed and presented by members of the Asian American Bar Association of New York, including Cadwalader attorneys Jessica Wong and Kathy Hirata Chin, the Honorable Denny Chin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the Honorable Kiyo Matsumoto of the Eastern District of New York, and the Honorable Ona Wang of the Southern District of New York. Fred Korematsu's daughter, Karen Korematsu, played herself in the reenactment and gave closing remarks.

Moreno Video Summarizes Legal Obligations Associated with Ransomware and Other Cyber Attacks

May 1, 2018

Cadwalader partner Joseph Moreno, a member of the firm’s White Collar Defense and Investigations Group and head of the firm’s Cybersecurity and Data Protection practice, talks about what company management, boards and in-house legal departments need to know about the legal obligations associated with ransomware and other cyber attacks.

In Moreno’s view, “Ransomware victims may find that their exposure does not end once the technical aspect of an attack has been resolved. Companies could find themselves scrutinized by the Federal Trade Commission and other regulators based on why the ransomware attacked happened in the first place, whether the company did enough to prevent it and whether the company has an obligation to disclose it to customers and even the investing public.”
