Mr. Glubiak is involved in the following high-profile matters:

Md.): On October 8, 2019, the Court appointed Cohen Milstein Co-Lead Counsel in this putative wage and hour suppression class action against the nation’s largest chicken and turkey producers conspired to suppress their compensation. As of July 20, 2021, the Court has preliminarily approved $49.8 million in settlements with four defendants. Litigation continues against other defendants.
- In Re: Da Vinci Surgical Robot Antitrust Litigation (N.D. Cal.): On September 24, 2021, the Court appointed Cohen Milstein Interim Co-Lead Counsel in this consolidated antitrust class action against Intuitive Surgical, Inc. Plaintiffs allege that Intuitive engages in an anticompetitive scheme under which it ties the purchase or lease of its must-have, market-dominating da Vinci surgical robot to the additional purchases of (i) robot maintenance and repair services and (ii) unnecessarily large numbers of the surgical instruments, known as EndoWrists, used to perform surgery with the robot—a violation of Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act.
