Managing partner Michael Arnold and associate attorney Lissa Casey won not-guilty verdicts for Manslaughter I and Evidence Tampering after a two-year battle in Linn County on August 26, 2013. This vehicular homicide allegation resulted from a single-vehicle, two-occupant DUI motorcycle accident.

This case was particularly expert-witness heavy and rich with engineering and physics principles. Lead counsel Mike Arnold was able to present these concepts to the jury by a focused preview in his opening statements and science-rich cross-examination of the state’s witnesses. The evidence presentation culminated with a computer simulation of the motorcycle accident during the defense accident reconstructionist. The state attempted to offer an accident reconstruction of its own but Arnold was able to successfully prevent its admissibility through a OEC 104 hearing outside the presence of the jury due to its inaccuracies and exaggerations, including a blood pool that did not comport with reality.

The almost two-year litigation process involved multiple motions, including a successful…[read full article]
