April 9 (Bloomberg) -- Joshua Rosenkranz, head of the Supreme Court and Appellate Litigation practice at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law's Spencer Mazyck about obtaining a landmark victory from the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of his client, Supap Kirtsaeng, in one of the top business and consumer cases in the court's nine-month term, Kirtsaeng v.
