Continental Airlines "Air Rage"


Dad Cleared of Assaulting Ticket Agent

John Davis was found not guilty of charges that he assaulted a Continental Airlines ticket agent at Newark International Airport, in a case that became a national symbol of “air rage”.

According to three jurors interviewed after the verdict, it was Anthony Pope’s closing arguments that sealed the acquittal in their minds.

Spared From Death


Paul D. Hernandez of Fanwood was convicted yesterday of felony murder in connection with the fatal shooting of a New York cab driver; a verdict that spares him from facing the death penalty.

The 21-year-old Navy veteran was acquitted of first-degree murder which would have required the jury to find that he acted purposefully and knowingly in the death of Harish Kakar on May 11, 1989.

Defense attorney Anthony J. Pope of Newark said the verdict indicated the jury believed his argument that the shooting was an accident.

“It’s clear the jury believed there was reasonable doubt as to whether he intended to kill,” said Pope.

Acquitted of Charges


A jury acquitted a Livingston man of vehicular homicide and assault charges in connection with the death of an Irvington woman in 2000.

Jurors took about an hour to decide that Edward Rimelis was not guilty of vehicular homicide in the death of Demeria Britt.

His attorney, Anthony Pope, said his client was being tailgated by an aggressive driver and he collided with Britt’s car after switching lanes to lose the tailgater.

Acquitted of Murder


An Essex County jury found that Dwayne Martin shot and killed an Irvington man in self-defense.

In returning not guilty verdicts, the jury sided with the claims of Newark defense attorney Anthony Pope. “I was ecstatic and I applaud the jury’s courage in finding there was self-defense in this case,” Pope said afterward.
