Dismissal of Case Arising from Northridge Earthquake Affirmed

April 1, 2015

In a published opinion, the Court of Appeal has affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit alleging misappropriation of settlement funds by the attorneys who represented victims of the 1994 Northridge earthquake in a major lawsuit against State Farm Insurance Company.  Martin represented one of the defendants and ghost-wrote a portion of the brief on the statute of limitations, which turned out to be the dispositive issue on appeal.
