April 2, 2020

Types : In the News

Susman Godfrey earned a spot on the legal lions list this week with a win for NYU in litigation brought by an anti-affirmative action group, while Armstrong Teasdale ended up among the legal lambs after a federal judge threw out its lawsuit on behalf of drivers alleging Jeep Cherokees were vulnerable to hacking.

Legal Lions


Next up on this week’s legal lions list are Goldstein & Russell and Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads LLP. The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday that three Citgo units are financially responsible for a $133 million oil spill in Delaware caused by a sunken anchor that was hidden beneath the water’s surface at a port and pierced a tanker’s hull, relieving the financial burden of the spill from the firms’ client Frescati Shipping Co. Frescati is represented by Sarah E. Harrington, Thomas C. Goldstein and Erica Oleszczuk Evans of Goldstein & Russell, John J. Levy, Alfred J. Kuffler and Eugene J. O’Connor of Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads LLP and Timothy J. Bergère of Armstrong Teasdale.
