Posted on Monday, November 20th, 2017 at 4:16 pm
The team at Williams Hart are proud to announce the firm’s appointment as co-lead counsel for Houston upstream flood claimants. The appointments were announced today by presiding Judge Braden, who appointed Williams Hart attorney Armi Easterby as Co-Lead Counsel for upstream claimants for the purposes of pre-trial discovery, motions for summary judgment, and for trial. The other Upstream Co-Lead Counsel are Charles Irvine and Larry Vincent.
In regards to the appointments, Judge Braden’s order states that: “the Court is concerned that the interests of property owners who ultimately may decide to opt-in to a certified class may be different from those who may decide to pursue claims as individuals. For this reason, the court has also appointed Mr. E. Armistead Easterby to serve as Co-Lead Counsel for the purposes set forth herein to ensure the interest of individual plaintiffs are represented, since Williams Hart LLP represents only individual plaintiffs who, at this point, do not seek class treatment.”
