City of Orlando v. Pineiro
— So.3d —-, 2011 WL 3359613
Fla.App. 5 Dist.,2011.
August 05, 2011 (Approx. 7 pages)
My honest thanks to the Fifth DCA for publishing a whole opinion on improper closing argument. My tongue-in-cheek thanks to anonymous counsel for making it possible.
Improper arguments covered in the opinion include:
- golden rule
- value of a life
- derogatory remarks about counsel
- “do anything to win”
REVERSED and REMANDED FOR NEW TRIAL.
