Daily Journal

Jennifer Meeker was recognized by Daily Journal as one of California's “Top Women Lawyers” (subscription required) for 2024. Each year, Daily Journal recognizes a handful of female lawyers from across the state whose work has had a profound impact on California’s legal landscape.

Daily Journal noted Jennifer’s appellate victory in the “Ninth Circuit published opinion in Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency v. Whittaker Corporation, which preserved a nearly $70 million jury verdict for her client.” It goes on to say that the “case was pivotal in safeguarding the water supply for hundreds of thousands of residents in Santa Clarita Valley, California.”

Commenting on the case, Jennifer said, “The ruling established that the costs of implementing groundwater treatment for the contamination caused by defendant Whittaker Corporation was the appropriate measure of damage under a number of common law counts, including negligence and nuisance.”

Additionally, the article highlights Jennifer’s appellate win for the Imperial Irrigation District (IID), when she helped the client knock down a suit involving decades-long “water rights litigation…raised by a group of farmers in the Imperial Valley over the ownership of several million-acre feet of present perfected water rights to the Colorado River water vested in IID.”

Jennifer also discussed what interested her in appellate law with Daily Journal, stating what drew her to the practice initially “was the challenges presented by the varied and complex legal issues presented in appeals as well as the opportunity to shape law based on real-life issues faced by my clients…[and] it does not hurt that I love written advocacy.”
