San Diego Daily Transcript

The verdict and judgment set a record for San Diego at that time, as the San Diego Daily Transcript reported in an article (Manville Ordered to Pay $6 Million for Faulty “Stucco,”) on July 2, 1982: “In what may have been the largest award in San Diego superior Court history, a jury yesterday said the Manville Corp. must pay nearly $6 million to two homeowners associations and an ice skating rink that used a defective building material sold by the corporation.

‘It’s the largest (award) anyone here can remember, and we go back 20 years,’ said Janice Cary, supervising clerk of the Superior Court. ‘We’re relatively sure’ the $5,994,000 award is a new county record, she said. The previous high, Cary added, was $4 million in a psychiatric malpractice case earlier this year.”

As he has in the past, Mr. Aguirre will represent individuals and institutions in judicial or administrative proceedings in any state and the District of Columbia. However, outside of California (where he is licensed), he would do so with permission of the court as co-counsel with a local attorney licensed to practice in the forum state.


Mr. Aguirre primarily assists clients throughout California including San Diego, Santa Clara, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, Los Angeles, Alameda, Kern and Orange Counties with investor and whistleblower claims involving banks, hedge funds, mutual funds, private equity funds, brokers, and other financial institutions. He focuses on claims arising out of market abuse (e.g., market manipulation, high frequency trading, insider trading, naked shorting), investment fraud, bribes to foreign officials under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the filing of false claims under federal or California law (qui tam statutes). Mr. Aguirre may represent individuals and institutions pro hac vice (in a particular case) in most states, but must first obtain the approval of the forum court, which has been routinely granted in the past. He will also assist individuals from any state or country who seek an award from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) under their whistleblower incentive programs.
