Working pro bono, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP notched a victory recently when Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Peter H. Kirwan entered a default judgment for just under $1 million against four participants in an alleged loan modification fraud scheme. The judge also allowed the case to proceed as a class action.

“We are delighted with the prospect that we may soon be able to bring some relief to our clients,” said Orrick partner Elizabeth Howard in a statement. “We are looking forward to our day in court to prove our case of fraud against the rest of the defendants.”
