Our Legacy: William (Bill) Hays
Between 1952 and his first retirement in 1984, Bill took about 18 cases to the Court of Appeals and three to the California Supreme Court.
He won all but six including his Supreme Court cases. Several of the losses were reversed by changes in the law. No one can win them all, but Bill’s record is hard to match.
