MARK GERAGOS, VARTKES YEGHIAYAN AND BRIAN KABATECK RECEIVE 2006 CLAY AWARD

*

SAN FRANCISCO, March 2, 2006 – Out of more than 200,000 attorneys California Lawyer Magazine chose attorneys Mark Geragos, Brian Kabateck and Vartkes Yeghiayan to be among the few attorneys which will receive the prestigious California Lawyer Attorney’s of the Year Award in litigation. The CLAY Award recognizes those attorneys throughout the state whose work has had a profound, far-reaching impact over the past year. The attorneys honored changed law, broke new ground in various practice areas, and substantially influenced public policy.

Armenian-American lawyers Mark Geragos, Brian Kabateck and Vartkes Yeghiayan were recognized for their work in reaching two settlements of $20 million and $17.5 with insurance companies on behalf of descendants of Armenians killed during the Armenian Genocide.

Martin Marootian, et al. v. New York Life Insurance Company and Kyurkjian, et. al. v. AXA were momentous since they represent the oldest resolved cases in U.S. History – 90 years passed between the events giving rise to these cases and their settlement. They are also the first recorded cases addressing issues involving the Armenian Genocide.

All three attorneys are of Armenian decent and descendants of Genocide victims and survivors. Through these cases, they feel honored to have helped people understand the magnitude of the atrocities committed during the Armenian Genocide.

These cases sprung from Vartkes Yeghiayan's astute perceptions and relentless pursuit of justice. They have opened the floodgates of case law toward recompense from those who made a windfall from our misery.

The effects of the Genocide reached far beyond the confines of the Ottoman Empire and continue today. A majority of us were lost to the sword, starvation, etc. and the few who miraculously survived were scattered to the ends of the earth.

Yes, they created a new chapter in case law. I heard about another recent case going back 140 years.
