A litigation team led by Bob Hemley and Matt Byrne scored a decisive victory for a CEO and CFO of a publicly-traded company in a proposed securities class action. After Gravel & Shea won a motion to dismiss before the United States District Court of Vermont in January 2012, the lead plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint with additional allegations. On March 20, 2013, Judge William Sessions dismissed the claims brought against both the CEO and CFO with prejudice.
On March 17, 2013, Gravel & Shea once again sponsored a team at the Howard Center’s 4th Annual Curling Challenge. “Gravel on Ice” consisted of Bill Post, Maureen Post, Emily Sanders and George Mench. They won their first two matches and made it to the quarterfinals. Gravel & Shea is pleased to have supported the Howard Center and its mission to improve the well-being of children, adults, families and communities.
