Dear VidAngel customers,
4 Hollywood studios have accused VidAngel of stealing their movies. That’s not true, but we are stealing their lawyers.
This week Attorney David Quinto, who used to be a lawyer for Disney and Warner Brothers, became the official lawyer of VidAngel. As you may recall, those studios and VidAngel are currently in a legal battle, so Quinto’s pulling a Kevin Durant and switching teams to the inevitable winners.
David Quinto is a fairly big deal.
The Hollywood Reporter named him to their list of Top 100 Power Lawyers. In fact, he was ranked #21 on the alphabetical list!
He spent 27 years as a lawyer for the Oscars, and during that time they never got sued for giving Best Actor to Nicholas Cage, so you know he’s good at his job.
He has had adventures in 140 countries during his life, including:
- Outrunning a knife-wielding assailant for close to a kilometer in Rio de Janeiro
- Escaping the Tuareg insurrection by fleeing Timbuktu aboard a Russian military cargo plane
- Spending a month in Argentina during the height of the Dirty War and almost being executed in Mendoza (without cause, we should note)
- Litigating his first case while still in law school and earning two published opinions, one of which has been cited by the Supreme Court
These are all true stories. No, WE PROMISE. They really are!
Welcome to the family, David!
