Eric Gibbs Selected to Daily Journal’s “Top Plaintiff Lawyers for 2020”
June 11, 2020
Gibbs Law Group is proud to announce that Eric Gibbs has been named to the Daily Journal’s list of “Top Plaintiff Lawyers for 2020.” This list honors attorneys who “consistently force broad change in the law, industry and society.”
The Daily Journal recognizes Eric’s groundbreaking work in the firm’s lawsuit against Facebook for allegedly inflating its viewership metrics by as much as 900% when selling its ad services to advertisers. A $40 million settlement has been preliminarily approved and a final approval hearing is scheduled for June 26.
“We’re proud of this one,” Eric said. “This conduct was unique and we were representing a rare class of business purchasers.”
Eric has also achieved preliminary approval of an $18.5 million settlement for a class of home mortgage borrowers who suffered “grave and longlasting consequences” when their loan modification requests were erroneously denied by Wells Fargo. The settlement will bring “significant compensation” for a class of over 500 home mortgage borrowers.
“We started this firm six years ago,” Eric says, “and we’re really hitting our stride now.”
Established in 1893, the Daily Journal is known as one of the foremost legal publications in the U.S. The publication is widely respected by California attorneys in all practice areas for its extensive coverage and profiles of judges, appellate decisions, and other notable legal information.
