On April 18, 2017, a Lincoln County jury found an HZW client not guilty of a criminal case of failing to stop for a law enforcement officer. The Lincoln County prosecutor insisted that Attorney Ben Donahue's client had intentionally ignored a police officer's signal to stop. The prosecutor showed the jury a video of the driver continuing 2.6 miles with a police car flashing its lights and sounding its siren behind him. On cross examination, Attorney Donahue discredited the prosecutor's video evidence and the police officer's testimony. Attorney Donahue's case rested on an argument that his Client's hearing loss caused the failure to stop. After Attorney Donahue's strong closing argument, the jury returned a verdict for the defense after forty-five minutes of deliberation.
