The University of California Board of Regents has hired Hueston Hennigan and former state Supreme Court justice Carlos R. Moreno to determine whether UC President Janet Napolitano's office interfered with a recent state audit.
The Hueston Hennigan team, led by Managing Partner Brian Hennigan, and Ret. Justice Moreno, now at JAMS, were retained after State Auditor Elaine M. Howle determined that Napolitano’s office had amassed $175 million in unaccounted for budget funds over four fiscal years.
Hueston Hennigan has particular expertise in the area of governmental investigations. In April, the San Diego Association of Governments (SanDag) hired the firm to conduct an independent examination of an inaccurate revenue forecast. Hueston Hennigan has also conducted internal investigations for the City of Santa Monica and the County of San Bernardino.
