In Bernstein et al v. Cengage Learning, Inc. (1:19-cv-07541), Vega and Dr. Daniel Spulber of Northwestern University were engaged by a putative class of authors who allege its publisher diluted net sales and underpaid contracted royalties. The class alleges that the publisher applied arbitrary and inappropriate haircuts to the authors’ work. Dr. Spulber was engaged to provide an expert analysis as to a damages methodology that reflects the value lost due to the publisher’s royalty reductions.
