State v. Peyton combines the most basic scenario that a new attorney will experience— the DUI case file—with a charge of felonious hit and run. Taylor Addison suffered first and second degree burns when her parked vehicle was sideswiped, spilling hot coffee over her left hand. No vehicle stopped after the accident, but Addison claims she saw a car identifiable as Jordan Peyton's driving away from the scene. Peyton has pled not guilty to all charges and claims that she did not collide with Addison's car.

With materials included for the trial of the defendant on these charges, the second edition of State v. Peyton adds social media evidence to a case that also provides student opportunities to consider the following criminal trial issues:

      •  medical expert testimony
      •  character evidence
      •  criminal conviction impeachment
      •  bias impeachment
      •  prior recorded testimony
      •  evidence from a 911 call
      •  breath test computer printout
      •  witness statements on Twitter

State v. Peyton plays out in the City of Nita. The file contains the indictment, statements, exhibits, preliminary hearing transcripts, Nita statutes, and case law, and proposed jury instructions and verdict form. For trial advocacy classrooms and programs that have the time, the case also offers optional expert testimony for each party on Peyton's likely blood alcohol content at the time of the accident.

Parties can be played by either men or women. Digital versions of the exhibits are available online for student use.

The author has also created an extensive teaching manual to not only help the professor with testimony but to provide skill exercises in the rules of evidence, refreshing recollection, impeachment by omission, impeachment by prior inconsistent statements, impeachment with bias, and expert voir dire. If you provide the environment, NITA will provide the setting for a most interesting experiential training opportunity.
