White, Graham, Buckley & Carr LLC is pleased to announce that partner Bryan White has been named an honoree in Missouri Lawyers Media’s Top Verdicts & Settlements, a list that recognizes the top verdicts and settlements of 2020 on both the plaintiff and defense side. White was part of a group of attorneys honored at the virtual 2021 Missouri Lawyers Awards on February 11 and in a special feature in Missouri Lawyer Media’s February 15 issue.
White, along with the firm and co-counsel Tom Bender and Dirk Hubbard of Horn Aylward & Bandy and Clayton A. Jones of Raymore, earned the No. 2 spot on the list and were recognized for their work in Hornbeck et al. v. Orscheln Farm and Home LLC, et al. In the case, the firm and its co-counsel group secured a $19 million class settlement agreement with Citgo Petroleum Corporation., the defendant in the high-profile class-action lawsuit arising from the defendants’ manufacturing and sale of so-called 303 tractor hydraulic fluid.
Missouri Lawyers Media originally covered the case in October after the team’s final fairness hearing, where the Court approved and finalized the settlement agreement.
