Representative Cases

Framingham District Court: Attorney Sullivan represented a longtime truck driver who was accused of driving greater than "reasonable" during a snow storm. The Massachusetts State Trooper who stopped his client testified that the speed on route 90 (also known as the Mass Pike) was lowered to 40 mph during a snow storm and the client was traveling 45 in the right hand lane. The client was cited and would lose his job if found responsible. Attorney Sullivan researched and found an article that stated the head of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation told CNN that all Massachusetts roads were reduced to 45 mph that day. Attorney Sullivan was able to argue to the judge that 45 mph was a "reasonable" speed because the state highway department itself determined this to be the case. After hearing Ryan Sullivan's argument, the judge found his client not responsible and he was able to keep his job. Result: NOT RESPONSIBLE for speeding.
