Porter Scott congratulates Terry Cassidy on his recent retirement. A member of this firm for over 33 years, he would like to thank all of his clients, his fellow partners and the staff at Porter Scott for their loyalty and support these many years.
Terry will now be spending more time with his family, travelling and watching the San Francisco Giants, but his imprint on civil rights cases remains. Terry prevailed in two cases before the United States Supreme Court. County of Sacramento v. Lewis, 523 U.S. 833 (1998) involved civil rights issues arising from a police pursuit, and Elk Grove Unified School District v. Michael Newdow, 124 S.Ct. 2301 (2004), which garnered national attention, involved a claim that the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance with the words “under god” violated the Establishment Clause of the United States Constitution. His notable cases before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals include Blanford v. Sacramento County, 406 F.3d 1110 (9th Cir. 2005) and Robinson v. Solano County, 229 F.3d 931 (9th Cir. 2000).
If you are seeking counsel for the defense of a civil rights type case, Terry highly recommends his partners Steve Horan, Carl Fessenden and/or John Whitefleet, as they are skilled trial and appellate attorneys in that area of practice. For defense in a personal injury related case, please contact managing partner, Carl Calnero, to assist you in selecting the best attorney in the firm for your case.
