A Miami litigator is moving for seven figures in attorney fees after a strategic application of voir dire led to a Florida jury returning a nearly $3 million verdict against a subsidiary of a publicly traded Fortune 500 company.

Devin “Velvel” Freedman, a partner at Freedman Normand Friedland, successfully challenged for his client, OJ Commerce LLC, five jurors for cause while preventing counsel for the defendant, Kühne + Nagel Inc., from using a preemptory challenge to strike a juror allegedly based on ethnicity and religion.
