Signification Cases

  • In a recent tragic multiparty trucking accident, Mr. Roniger tried a jury case on behalf of an excess insurer in a Louisiana federal court after admitting liability. Mr. Roniger participated in obtaining a verdict well below the client’s level of insurance, resulting in a savings of millions of dollars to the excess insurer.

  • Mr. Roniger defended a railroad in a personal-injury toxic-tort class-action lawsuit involving approximately 25,000 claimants, which arose out of an explosion and chemical release from a chemical plant. Mr. Roniger was lead railroad trial counsel and obtained a zero verdict in the first trial of representative plaintiffs, enabling the railroad to enter into a favorable settlement with the remaining plaintiffs.

  • Mr. Roniger worked with solicitors in London to recover the proceeds of the 26 November 1983 armed robbery of the Brinks warehouse at Heathrow Airport, where $42 million of gold bouillon was stolen. The robbers, and others acting on their behalf, brought a significant portion of the proceeds of this robbery into the United States, and Mr. Roniger participated in bringing civil RICO claims to effect the recovery of a part of the proceeds of the robbery.

  • Mr. Roniger represented one of several hundred defendants in CERCLA litigation brought by over 9000 plaintiffs, arising out of the storage of toxic waste in Louisiana.
