After a challenging three-week federal court trial, we secured a $65 million jury verdict in favor of our public water agency client who had been involved in a 20-year legal battle with a polluter. Having worked with three generations of management at the water agency, our familiarity with the underlying facts and opposing party provided key insight that allowed us to formulate a successful trial plan.
We obtained regulatory approval from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on behalf of the San Gabriel Valley Water Company so it could acquire the City of Montebello’s water system and associated assets. San Gabriel is now able to add to its rate base while Montebello water service customers are ensured long-term access to clean and safe water service.
We advised the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) on drafting a $2.6 billion transportation bill, Proposition L, that voters approved in the November 2022 election. Proposition L will fund SFCTA’s Transportation Expenditure Plan for 30 years and result in $2.6 billion in local transportation funds.
We successfully concluded a bankruptcy proceeding after a 15-year-long battle that involved numerous related legal disputes for a family that had farmed the land for generations. As a result, our clients retained their homes, several farm properties and a seven figure payment.
