Bill Haluck Gains Unanimous Verdict

Congratulations to our Irvine Partner Bill Haluck for his recent unanimous defense verdict in a closely watched and highly publicized race discrimination action filed against the Orange County Assessor as a result of his promotion of an African American over a more experienced Caucasian. The jury concluded that the Assessor, Webster Guillory, Orange County's highest ranking African American office holder, did not show racial favoritism when he promoted the less experienced candidate. The jury returned its verdict on Feb. 5, 2007.
