Jacksonville, Fla., Aug. 1, 2017 – Jacksonville Attorney Barry Newman, a partner in the Spohrer Dodd law firm, was a featured speaker at a national conference of attorneys in Boston hosted by the American Association for Justice. Newman, a foremost attorney on aviation law and one of only 37 board certified aviation lawyers in the United States, was asked to talk about his experience in trying cases overseas.

Newman appeared before the High Court of Kenya in Nairobi in 2016, and again in March of this year, on behalf of two United Kingdom residents who were injured in the crash of a sightseeing helicopter while visiting Kenya in 2010. Recent Supreme Court decisions limiting the jurisdiction of federal courts will require more and more attorneys to litigate abroad.

“My experience with Kenya’s justice system provided a unique opportunity to educate and prepare my peers for the challenges of a foreign trial,” said Newman. “Being authorized by Kenya’s Attorney General to act as ‘lead advocate’ in its judicial proceedings was an unexpected honor.”

Like Florida and other U.S. States, other countries rarely allow foreign lawyers who are not members of their bar association to participate in their courts.

“Many firms facing the prospect of having to try a case in a foreign country will simply abandon those claims. We made a decision to see it through for our clients,” said Newman, who spent more than five years litigating the case before the trial began.
