|After several years of fierce litigation, a settlement has been reached for CashCall, Inc. in a landmark legal malpractice lawsuit against Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, an AmLaw 100 law firm.
Keller/Anderle LLP, attorneys for CashCall, had previously filed a $950 million lawsuit in 2017, one of the largest legal malpractice cases ever seen in the country. The settlement was achieved on the eve of trial after several key victories on critical motions. Most recently, on July 9th, a California trial judge rejected a defense bid to apply Washington, D.C.,’s contributory negligence law instead of California’s compensatory negligence law, setting the stage for the trial, which was set to begin on August 16th.
Reuben Camper Cahn and Jennifer Keller, along with Shaun Hoting, Chase Scolnick, Dylan Mefford and Gregory Sergi, represent CashCall. “We are pleased to achieve this result for our client after four years of hard-fought litigation,” says Jennifer L. Keller.
