Trial Advocate – Manny Conditsis
Solicitor – Natasha Konic
A young man was charged with dangerous driving causing the death of a motorcyclist, when the collision occurred with his car being on the wrong side of the road. If he had been convicted he would have gone to gaol for some years. Manny Conditsis strongly cross examined the prosecution’s expert witness (in the absence of the jury), after which he asked the trial judge not to allow that evidence to be heard by the jury. The trial judge agreed. Manny Conditsis then sought and obtained a direction from the trial judge to the jury, to acquit the young man. The young man was acquitted.
