Project Description

March 2015: Blake Hamilton, Ashley Gregson, and Chris Wade successfully moved to exclude three expert witnesses that the United States Department of Justice intended to use at trial, one of whom the Department of Justice spent over $150,000 to retain. In this federal fair housing and unlawful policing lawsuit, the Judge agreed with the DJP team that one of the experts’ opinions were not relevant to the issues in the case, and that the other two experts were improperly identified as part of an unfair litigation tactic on the part of the Department of Justice. The exclusion of these witnesses from trial will substantially limit the issues the Department of Justice can present to the jury.
