Scott Street

Scott Street began his career as a journalist, first at UCLA, where he attended college, and then at the Chronicle of Higher Education in Washington, DC. That led him into his second career, performing political research and strategy for political campaigns and companies around the country. His clients included a former president, a former Speaker .

During that time, Scott attended law school, graduating with honors from Loyola Law School, where he was a Dean's Scholar. Scott edited Loyola's Entertainment Law Review Board and served on the school's Moot Court Honors Board. He completed a judicial externship for Ninth Circuit Judge Kim M. Wardlaw and also published several articles on constitutional law.

Scott started his legal career at the global law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, where he worked closely with lawyers across the firm, from Los Angeles to London. He was a key part of the team of appellate lawyers that upheld the biggest judgment ever issued against an individual trustee (Uzyel v. Kadisha, 188 Cal. App. 4th 866 (2010)). He also argued an immigration case, pro bono, in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and convinced the court to vacate his client's deportation order based on the ineffective assistance of the client's prior lawyer (Baghdasaryan v. Holder, Case No. 06-71851 (9th Cir. Feb. 25, 2011)).

More recently, Scott worked for several years at Miller Barondess, LLP, and Baute Crochetiere & Hartley LLP, two of Los Angeles' premier litigation boutiques. There his work included a broad range of business litigation and trial work, both for plaintiffs and defendants. Of note, Scott participated in a high-profile civil rights trial against the City of Los Angeles. He defended a regional bank in a purported class action based on its use of the "365/360" method to calculate interest on short-term loans. He defended a commercial real estate broker against negligence and breach of fiduciary duty claims. He also helped defend an appliance manufacturer in a $10 million products liability case filed by a magazine publisher (the case settled before trial).

Scott's clients have included real estate companies, developers, Fortune 500 companies, local businesses, public interest organizations and individuals. He also continues to advise political candidates and government officials. And he is very active in the community, having served on the Advisory Board of the Western Center on Law and Poverty and on the Board of Directors of Five Acres, the Boys' and Girls' Aid Society of Los Angeles. He is licensed to practice law in California and before the United States Supreme Court.

Although a longtime Democrat, Scott has been one of the lawyers fighting against abuses of government power during the Covid-19 pandemic, most notably for the California Fitness Alliance, a coalition of gym owners who successfully sued the State of California to restore equitable access to fitness. Scott has also advised thousands of businesses and individuals across the country about their rights during the pandemic.

Scott is an avid golfer and a member of golf clubs in Los Angeles and Scotland. He lives in Pasadena. He writes frequently about legal and political issues. You can find some of his work at https://thefederalist.com/author/scottstreet/.
