Case: Newmont Mining/Joint Defense Group
Venue: Colorado State Court, Denver
Year: 1997


Think Twice was engaged to join the team of co-counsels representing multiple defendants in a mining site groundwater contamination case outside of Telluride, Colorado.

First, Think Twice would need to simplify, develop and weave a consistent story among the multiple defendants and their experts to establish our story in the minds of the jury. Second, Think Twice would need to present clear and compelling demonstratives on proper mining procedures, the actual events surrounding the contamination, and the expert environmental and geological data, for the jury to understand the legal arguments and application of state statutes.

Finally, if the defendants were found liable, the jury's calculation of damages would depend on their understanding of the relevance of occurrence records.

Working closely with the various experts, Think Twice distilled the often disparate and arcane report data into one convincing visual story. We conveyed a favorable interpretation to the jury with easily comprehensible and engaging technical graphics, analogies and tutorials.

The jury ruled in the defendants' favor, accepting our presentation of the facts and environmental implications.
