O’Melveny’s Goetz Quoted in Law360 Article on Effects of LA Superior Court’s Budget CutsMarch 09, 2012
O’Melveny & Myers partner and Chair of the Firm’s class actions, mass torts and insurance litigation practice Richard Goetz was quoted in the March 6, 2012, Law360 article “LA Superior Court's Cuts Signal Major Case Delays.” In the article, Goetz remarked how “although the courts are not alone in feeling the pain from the state’s budget problems, they are a part of the government that may affect citizens the most. Courts are the touch point that citizens have with the government, maybe more than any other part, and this will be something that affects people on a much broader basis.” He continued noting “how fast cases go through the courts and access to justice across the state are going to be significantly impacted by this.”
Goetz resides in the Firm’s Los Angeles office.
