Mukasey also was the judge in the litigation between developer Larry Silverstein and several insurance companies arising from the destruction of the World Trade Center.[2] In a 2003 suit, he issued a preliminary injunction preventing the Motion Picture Association of America from enforcing its ban against the distribution of screener copies of films during awards season, ruling that the ban was likely an unlawful restraint of trade unfair to independent filmmakers.

In a 2008 hearing, he said waterboarding would feel like torture if he were subjected to it.[4] However, on December 11, 2014, Mukasey stated on CNN that he believed waterboarding could not be called torture.[5]
