Powell et. al. v. Avalon - Successfully settled a lawsuit brought against one of the nation's largest private prison operators.

NOTE: This is a civil case and cannot be expunged.
Campbell v. Hollis I.S.D. and Sexton - Mr. James successfully defeated a motion to dismiss and was one of the first cases in Oklahoma to keep the entire school board in as defendants. The case involved a student who was repeatedly raped by their school teacher. This case was resolved short of trial with the school board and resulted in a one million dollar verdict against the teacher.
State v. R.Z.M. - Argued the case before the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals and successfully upheld previous counsel's motion to dismiss made at the trial court level. The case resulted in a firestorm of international controversy as it invalidated an arrest for forcible oral sodomy and redefined the definition of the word force in Oklahoma.
