The defendant alleged that he was forced to make an evasive maneuver because another car pulled in front of him, and that the motorcyclist had purposefully sped up to get around the car. The responding police officer found the motorcyclist at fault. The motorcyclist was represented by Daniel M. Hodes of Hodes Milman Liebeck, and obtained a $375,000 settlement.
