Outrageous Government Conduct
George was featured recently in the Skagit Valley Herald after he managed to achieve a dismissal of all charges against a felony client due to outrageous government conduct. Read the full story here.
This marks only the second time an attorney in Washington State has successfully won a dismissal on these grounds. The first time was in 1996, after a lengthy appeal of the original case’s 1993 verdict on an arrest from 1991. Click here to read the opinion of State v. Lively (1996).
The case is up for an appeal on April 9, 2018, and we are certainly hoping the Court of Appeals affirms George’s hard-won victory.
