Neil Dymott Hudson attorneys obtained a 12-0 verdict on behalf of the San Diego Public Conservator's Office in a civil suit to determine the necessity for public conservatorship of a mental health patient. Petitioner claimed Respondent suffered a grave mental disability and was unable to adequately provide for basic needs of food, clothing, or shelter. Respondent asserted no mental disorder existed and she could safely provide for herself on her own.

Trial lasted three days and after three hours of deliberations, the jury verdict was 12-0 for the Petitioner. This matter was handled as a pro bono service to the County of San Diego.
