Facing accusations in yet another year of California’s devastating wildfires, SoCal Edison once again turns to Hueston Hennigan to serve as lead counsel. Hueston Hennigan is already defending SoCal Edison and Edison International in litigation arising out of the 2017 Thomas Fire and 2018 Montecito Mudslides.
Hueston Hennigan is pleased to announce that Alexander C.D. Giza, a partner in the firm’s Los Angeles office, has been appointed by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. to serve as a Superior Court Judge in Los Angeles County.
On Tuesday, November 27, partner John Hueston argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in a matter that has significant implications for class action cases. The question presented is whether Rule 23(f) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure—and mandatory claims-processing rules in general—are necessarily susceptible to equitable tolling. This question of first impression has resulted in split rulings from the U.S. Courts of Appeal.
Partners Brian Hennigan and John Hueston were named “Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America” in the 2019 edition of Benchmark Litigation. “This elite group of practitioners were recognized as the best in breed for the coveted and in-demand, yet increasingly rare, art of trial law,” according to the publication.
