Winners and Losers of the Week
June 23, 2007
Winner of the Week: Defense Attorney Randall Knox.

all charges against Knox' client, former Department of Building
Inspections Manager Augustine Fallay, after a jury hopelessly

saved his best for last when he put Fallay on the stand and used
common sense in his closing arguments.

Although Assistant District Attorney Marc Katz proved to be a
talented and gifted trial attorney, his star witness, Tony Fu,
was deemed incredible by jurors. Fu hobbled Katz' case from the
start of the nine-week trial.
