Civil Law

Rogue Cops Raid Atlanta Gay Bar and Attempt Cover Up of Abuses

Calhoun v. Pennington, Court File No. 1:09-CV-03286 (N.D. Ga. Dec. 8, 2010)

The Calhoun case demonstrates how digital forensic expertise can be used to uncover important evidence with the potential to drastically change the result of a lawsuit.  In Calhoun, the result included a monetary settlement for the Plaintiffs, as well as policy changes that arguably restored some of the public trust in the Atlanta Police Department.

Criminal Law

Data Mining Minnesota Murder Victim’s Cell Phone Reveals Smoking Gun Evidence

State v. Ferguson, 804 N.W.2d 586 (Minn. 2011)

The Ferguson defense overcame the evidentiary threshold established in Atkinson by data mining and producing cell phone evidence that directly tied another to the crime scene and the crime itself.  The digital evidence recovered by Carney Forensics culminated in a Supreme Court reversal and remand for a new murder trial for Calvin Ferguson.
