We used an innovative trial approach to defeat the bank's unlawful detainer claim against our client.
In re: M. Hastings
Oct 24, 2011
Case dismissed against bank because of lack of standing, due to our unusual argument: that the bank was not a "person." The bank was trying to use the estate against the woman who actually owned the house.
Edwards v. Gerstein, 237 SW3d 580 (Mo. Supreme Court)
Oct 30, 2007
Win at Supreme Court - Win with co-counsel at trial
Sued on behalf of chiropractor who was wrongly investigated by the Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Was denied at all levels until the Missouri Supreme Court, which decided 6-1 in our favor. We were given the right to sue, and obtained an $8.9 million jury verdict in 2010.
State v. Jesse Everett Ament (2003)
The state charged a county commissioner with sexual assault on several teenage girls. The press was horrible, and everyone assumed he was guilty. After many depositions, we tried the case at jury. The judge directed a not guilty verdict for us in the third day of trial.
