Education and public entity attorneys
Best, Best & Krieger represented Tri-City Healthcare Medical
Center.
BBK does some Vista
Unified School District
work (Keenan) and
some of Marsh and
McMillan (Tri City
Hospital through
BETA JPA).  

VUSD took a lawyer
out of BBK (William
"Woody" Merrill); also
from Foley and
Lardner (Greg Moser).
BBK attorney Woody Merrill fired from Tri-City Healthcare Medical Center.
Julie Biggs

"...[T]he Biggs family's role in
seeking the recall of
Redlands' mayor would have
conflicted with Julie Biggs'
work for Redlands. The fact
that all of the parties involved
held nonpartisan offices
does not indicate that
political affiliation, and the
city council's need to trust its
contract attorneys, was any
less important...

For the foregoing reasons,
we affirm the district court's
grant of summary judgment
to the council defendants on
Julie Biggs' section 1983
action. We reverse the
district court's decision
denying the council
defendants summary
judgment on Jerry and Holly
Biggs' section 1983 claims,
and remand with instructions
to grant the council
defendants' motion for
summary judgment.

Costs to Foster and Larson
in both cases.
