We recently obtained a dismissal of a client's DWI charge by showing to the DA that our client did not intend to operate the motor vehicle. Specifically, while he had the car on, he had the car in park, reclined the seat and was sleeping. He merely kept the car on to keep warm.
Jury Verdict: $450,000 - after appeal $900,000
Jury awarded $450,000. We appealed and convinced the Second Department to order a new trial on future damages. Case settled for almost double the jury verdict.
