$54,000.00 JURY VERDICT FOR CONSUMER IN CONSTRUCTION CASE
Mr. Nye successfully tried a case in which the contractor had wrongfully performed construction services. It cost the client $54,000.00 to repair the substandard work, and he obtained that verdict from a jury after trial. The highlight of the trial was Mr. Nye's closing argument, in which he wore an Elmer Fudd hat to illustrate to the jury the incompetence of the construction crew. Additionally, the jury found Mr. Nye's damages expert very believable. Mr. Nye obtained the expert, who had never testified at a trial, but whose credentials were impeccable and integrity and opinion unassailable by the opposing attorney.
$17,000.00 JURY VERDICT FOR TRESPASS CASE
Mr. Nye's client was a hardworking wage earner who happened to have an attorney as a neighbor. The attorney put up a fence, encroaching upon Mr. Nye's client's property, and proceeded to claim right to his client's property. Against one of the most famous trial lawyers in the State of Michigan, Mr. Nye won a jury verdict of $17,000.00 for his client on one trespass claim and defeating seven counterclaims by the attorney-plaintiff.

FELONY FRAUD CLAIMS DISMISSED
Mr. Nye's client was charged with felony criminal fraud for transactions related to a business enterprise. It became apparent to Mr. Nye that neither the prosecutor nor the police had actually read the materials on which they based the criminal charges.

NOT GUILTY VERDICT ON RESISTING AND OBSTRUCTING
Mr. Nye's client was a severe diabetic. During a sugar crash, she drove her car into a guard rail and off the road. When the police responded and did not notice a passerby. The police appeared, and being absolutely ignorant of the effects of diabetes, proceeded to treat Mr. Nye's client's resistance as an intentional act, as opposed to a severe diabetic reaction. She put a slapping, mouthy struggle, and the police arrested her for resisting and obstructing. That is a felony offense. In point of fact, the police provided her with a sugar test at the police station, and at trial Mr. Nye obtained expert testimony from a medical doctor that his client's medical condition from the diabetes caused her irrational behavior. Despite providing medical evidence to the prosecutor prior to trial, the prosecutor continued to prosecute the unfortunate, diabetic lady. At trial, Mr. Nye convinced the jury that the cause for her strange behavior and resistence to the police was a direct result of her diabetic crash, and the police should have treated her with compassion rather than arresting her as a common criminal. It should be noted that Mr. Nye's client was in her mid-50's, had never had a criminal record, and worked at a party store. Mr. Nye did this case pro bono, that is without any charge whatsoever, and rightfully defended the freedom of this poor, unfortunate, diabetic lady. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and his client walked free.
