On Tuesday, February 26, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a unanimous opinion in favor of our client Nutraceutical Corporation, adopting Hueston Hennigan’s argument that mandatory claim-processing rules are unalterable if properly raised. This preserves Hueston Hennigan’s victory at the lower court, where it obtained decertification of the putative plaintiff class. Hueston Hennigan has handled the case, Nutraceutical Corp. v. Lambert, since inception at the district court stage.
As noted in the Daily Journal, on Monday, February 4, 2019, Judge Mitchell L. Bekloff of the Los Angeles Superior Court granted Hueston Hennigan’s application for a preliminary injunction against a California state agency. The decision, in the closely watched case, holds that the pricing notifications to the state pursuant to California Senate Bill 17 are protectable trade secrets and may not be disclosed in response to a California Public Records Act request.
Hueston Hennigan LLP is pleased to announce that six partners have been named Southern California Super Lawyers for 2019. The firm extends congratulations to partners Alison Plessman, Marshall Camp, Brian Hennigan, John Hueston, Rob Klieger, and Allison Libeu.
