Law360 mentioned Haynes and Boone, LLP in an article about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to deny review of Fifth Circuit decision in favor of firm client the Dallas Police and Fire Pension System.

The pension system is represented by Partners Ben Mesches and Nina Cortell and Associates Kelli Bills and Jason Jordan.
