City of Dunwoody v. M.K.
M.K. charged with impeding an intersection. We were hired the day before the case was supposed to go to trial. After investigating the case, we discovered that the Dunwoody Police Department Officer had taken a job with the Federal ATF despite being told by the prosecution and the Dunwoody Police Department that the officer would be in court to testify. On the day of trial, the City offered a plea to a lesser charge. After being confronted with the fact that we knew the prosecution would not be able to produce their officer, the City agreed to dismiss the charge before trial.
