Jennifer Keller- Best Results
Cite as 6 Litigation Commentary & Rev. 10 (March/April 2014)
Defense attorneys Paul S. Meyer and Jennifer L. Keller led a team of attorneys and investigators that developed evidence demonstrating each of the Kenyan household worker's claims was a lie. During the course of the exhaustive defense investigation, witnesses were interviewed by attorneys and investigators in the United States, Kenya, the Philippines, and Saudi Arabia. The evidence conclusively established that the household workers' claims that they were overworked and not free to leave were false.
The evidence included numerous photos and videos of the workers, taken by themselves and/or by closed circuit TV, showing their use of the large swimming pool, gym, spa and parks in the luxury condo complex where they resided - as well as their travels to many entertainment and shopping sites in California. These photos and videos were posted by the women themselves.
In addition, witnesses told defense investigators that the workers were regularly seen relaxing for many hours each day in the condo complex. The evidence showed they used their cell phones, iPads and Facebook accounts to brag about the good life they were living. The work hours were within a normal range for household workers, and the workers spent many hours each day relaxing at the condo facility and traveling with drivers provided for their use. Further, the Kenyan worker was provided free medical care and appropriate follow-up.
Based on its own investigation, as well as the defense evidence, Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas dismissed the charge against Princess Alayban on September 20, 2013.
Attorneys Paul S. Meyer and Jennifer L. Keller stated, "Justice has been done. Princess Alayban is innocent. The allegations which were based on lies in an attempt to gain the right to stay in the United States have been rejected by the prosecutor."
