Paul Miller defended the case on the basis that the Defendant did not operate his vehicle in a negligent manner and that Plaintiff was contributorily negligent in being stopped in the road, barring any recovery for damages from her injuries.

Plaintiffs asked the jury to return a verdict for $100,000. The jury deliberated for fifteen minutes, returning a defense verdict in favor of Michael Arrington.
