Embarrassing, I have a very simple question. I can't interprete this cover of a precedent case because I am an English learner. Please give me your help. In the middle of the image I attached below,
"Louis J. Hoffman, Hoffman Patent Firm of Scottsdale, Arizona, argued for plaintiff-appelle. On the brief was Lan B Crosby, Susman Godfrey LLP, of Seattle, Washington."
In this sentence, Is Louis the plaintiff-appelle? or... Louis is the lawyer??
