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.
Two Hueston Hennigan partners – John Hueston and Moez Kaba – are once again named to the Daily Journal’s “Top 100 Lawyers in California.” The list recognizes the very best California attorneys who have made an impact on the law and society within the last year.
