Each Tuesday we issue a new Engle trading card featuring an attorney, trial, or firm from Florida’s Engle progeny tobacco cases. Our exclusive cards provide a light-hearted way to track important statistics through eight years of this landmark tobacco litigation.
Card #4: W. Ray Persons
W. Ray Persons, from King & Spalding's Atlanta office, has tried 8 Engle cases in three years. His record features an impressive three-trial wining streak in 2013 and 14. Click here to view his full-size card.
King & Spalding's W. Ray Persons has been one of the most active Engle defense attorneys since we issued our Series 1 cards in 2011; he carries an impressive 4-3 record with only one mistrial in the last three years. The nine-month period between May 2013 and February 2014 was particularly busy, and more importantly, successful, for Persons: he built a three-trial winning streak during that time.
Come back next Tuesday to see who’ll be the focus of our third Engle card.
