The Daily Journal has named Theodore J. Boutrous, Jr. and Scott Edelman to its annual list of California's Top 100 lawyers.  The list provides a "snapshot of the best and brightest California and the legal profession have to offer."  Both Edelman and Boutrous were recognized for representing Dole Food Company in cases that were dismissed after the Gibson Dunn team presented evidence exposing a massive fraud being committed against Dole by the plaintiffs.  Boutrous was also recognized for his role in the largest class action in U.S. history and for winning summary judgment for the Los Angeles County Superior Court's judicial benefits system.   The list appeared in the September 23, 2009 issue of the Daily Journal.
