Larson LLP is one of the many “powerhouse” firms representing plaintiffs in a class action against Amplify Energy Corp. for the major oil spill detected off the Orange County coast on Oct. 2, 2021, Daily Journal reported.
The article covered the filing on Oct. 28 by three plaintiffs’ firms to “consolidate all the class actions and be named class counsel . . . [which] prompted bids from other plaintiffs’ lawyers to lead the litigation.” U.S. District Judge David O. Carter is likely to take over the entire litigation and assign the class counsel.
Larson LLP is “collaborating with McCune Wright Arevalo LLP to represent a class of bait and tackle companies,” the article explained. In speaking with Daily Journal, partner Stephen G. Larson “confirmed that he, in conjunction with other firms, will also seek a leadership role.”
“This is a significant case and there are a lot of highly qualified people involved . . . There are a good number of people who can play this role, so Judge Carter will figure it out,” Stephen stated. “We’re working on it, and a lack of filing from us doesn’t reflect a lack of interest to have things worked out.”
