Prior to joining Capstone, Glenn successfully briefed and argued the precedent-setting appeal in Brown v. Ralph’s Grocery Co., 197 Cal.

Glenn also successfully defeated an appeal of a motion to remand under the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA) “local controversy exception” in Coleman v. Estes Express Lines, Inc., 631 F.3d 1010 (9th Cir. 2011), making new law in the process.
Glenn began his career and received his training at an international law firm in New York City, where he primarily focused on antitrust and securities litigation.

After law school, he clerked for the Honorable U.W. Clemon, Chief U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Alabama. He received his undergraduate degree in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University, where he was a member of the mock trial team and editor of the Cornell Political Forum.
