Hueston Hennigan is named among one of the 2018 “Top Boutiques” by the Daily Journal. Hueston Hennigan, one of 20 firms named to the prestigious list, was noted for “performing high-stakes litigation and white collar defense and investigations.”
Hueston Hennigan LLP secured a partial dismissal of a lawsuit against the public accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (Pwc) and seven of its partners in Botta v. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP et al, 18-CV02615 (N.D. Cal) (Seeborg, J.).
On Tuesday, Judge Cynthia A. Bashant of the Southern District issued an order denying a preliminary injunction requested by a San Diego group who sued the San Diego Unified School District to challenge its anti-bullying program. The program was originally developed to address a rise in Islamophobia.
“[The order] is a helpful guidepost for others who are trying to take meaningful productive steps to protect students in their schools, whether they’re targeted for race, gender, sexual orientation or something else,” said partner Moez Kaba in an article for the Daily Journal.
