The excerpt from the Circuit Court register of actions:
Attorney Ewing represented a local attorney and US Army reservist who was charged with embezzling client funds. The case was complex due to the amount of documents and exhibits. After lengthy court proceedings and multiple motion battles–the Circuit Court Judge dismissed the case. Charges were never refiled.
Motions to Suppress are seemingly rarely granted. In this Ewing Law case, our client was identified in Court (for the first time) by the victim in the case. Attorney Ewing filed a Motion to Suppress the victim’s in-court identification because the courtroom presented an unduly suggestive environment for such an identification. That same victim was unable to identify our client in a previous line-up. The Genesee County Circuit Court Judge agreed–suppressing the identification.
