When a Utah lawyer needed to persuade a jury that an Ogden City golf cart path had been negligently designed, he found his MacIntosh iPad a handy tool.
It wasn't too flashy, simply a low-profile, easy-to-operate tool for presenting the trial documents into evidence, Partner Peter Summerill of Hasenyager & Summerill explains in a recent blog post on MacLitigator.
The MacLitigator post explains in detail how Summerill worked with Keynote presentation software to make his case.
While the jury found Summerill's client 30 percent at fault for his injuries the trial was nonetheless a win, according to CNET News:
Ogden City had at one point offered a $6,600 settlement, but the jury awarded $361,661.
