Attorney Mildred K. O'Linn ..., 14 July 2013 [cached]
Attorney Mildred K. O'Linn with the Los Angeles office of Manning & Kass, Ellrod, Ramirez, Trester LLP will represent the city.
A former campus police officer at Kent State University, she is the second vice president of the local chapter of the California Association of Police Training Officers and a "recognized expert in the use of force," according to her biography on the firm's website.
O'Linn is currently representing the city in another federal civil rights case involving Jeremiah Banks, a convicted felon shot 10 times by Torrance police during two traffic stops in June 2011.
O'Linn said the city offered to do so immediately after the shooting. Sheahen countered the city wanted Perdue to also sign a release form saying he was of sound mind and body, which he said is clearly not the case given his injuries.
"The city was not asking him to give up any legal rights to sue them, they were trying to make it right that day," O'Linn said.
Attorneys on appeal were John Burton ..., 11 July 2012 [cached]

Law Office of John Burton, Pasadena, 27 July 2010 [cached]
Taser's lead attorney--Mildred K. O'Linn, a partner at Manning & Marder, Kass, Ellrod, Ramirez in Los Angeles--petitioned U.S. District Judge James Ware to either exclude the opinions and testimony or conduct a formal Daubert hearing.
O'Linn argued that Myers lacked the requisite qualifications and experience, and that his causation theories were not supported by scientific evidence.
Without Myers's testimony, O'Linn told the court, "Taser['s defense] is done, because plaintiffs' counsel has simply failed to produce anyone who could testify as to causation in this matter."
O'Linn argued that citing animal research failed to pass muster under Daubert.
