Martin Wins Two Reversals in One Day
Martin won two separate reversals on the same day on August 13, 2013. In the first, Martin represented a girl who was raped by a football player attending the same high school. The Court of Appeal in Los Angeles reversed a summary judgment ruling in favor of the school district, rejecting its claims of immunity for failing to take action after the assailant had sexually assaulted a prior victim who also attended the same high school. In the second, Martin represented a plaintiff who sued his bankruptcy lawyer for misadvising him about the statute of limitations for a claim of legal malpractice. The Court of Appeal in San Diego reversed a summary judgment ruling in favor of the bankruptcy lawyer.
