FSM Partner Leads Defense Team to Victory in Hit and Run Trial for UMKC CLE Programming05/01/2017
Nikki Cannezzaro participated in a Continuing Legal Education Program sponsored by the University of Missouri - Kansas City School of Law with several prominent attorneys from both the plaintiffs' and defense bars titled "A Civil Jury Trial Demonstration." The CLE consisted of the presentation to area lawyers and law students of an entire civil jury trial, from jury selection through closing arguments, involving a hit and run claim. Each stage of the trial was followed by short discussions from the presenters. Ms. Cannezzaro was selected to present the closing arguments and lead the defense team through trial. This year's trial resulted in a defense verdict after over 1 hour of deliberations.
