(Kim Gordon)

“Contempt of cop” charges dismissed during trial: Charges of obstruction, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer were dismissed during trial after demonstrating that the Seattle Police Department violated discovery orders and withheld evidence. Case became one of the factors motivating the City of Seattle to review Seattle Police internal investigation and civilian oversight policies and procedures. (Kim Gordon)

No conviction in assault case: Represented a doctor charged with assaulting his 4-year-old child. Case ended without conviction after filing motions to challenge the sufficiency of the city’s evidence. (Kim Gordon)
