Congratulations to all the CMCP Member Law Firm Attorneys who received 2015 CLAY Awards
Recognizing CMCP member attorneys of color among this year's Clay Award winners!
Alison Tsao - Individual member from Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger.
Achievement in Class Action: This team secured a unanimous California Supreme Court decision limiting the use of surveys, sampling, and statistics when evaluating whether a trial plan satisfies due process for class certification.
Achievement in Education: Marcellus McRae and Theodore J. Boutrous Jr. and their team won a Superior Court ruling invalidating California’s teacher tenure and job dismissal statutes. It prompted discussion about reforming job protections in California’s Education Code and encouraged a legal challenge in New York.
Achievement in Environment: The Munger Tolles legal team represented drilling rig owner Transocean in litigation stemming from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The victory enforcing BP’s contract to indemnify Transocean gave rig operators confidence that similar contracts will be honored.
