Issaquah Law Group - Personal Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

Division II: Johnson's Johnson's Main Vein Okay to Tame

State v. Johnson

Every once in a while, an opinion forces me to look up a word:

ple·thys·mo·graph: an instrument for determining and registering variations in the size of an organ, limb, or part resulting from changes in the amount of blood present or passing through it

Now, given that this is a criminal case, you can guess the context. That’s right, Mr. Johnson had a panache for letting the little Johnson control the big Johnson. Specifically, Big Johnson was a voyeur. (I’m a little sad it wasn’t exposure…as I had a great line about Big Johnson taking Little Johnson out in public). Now, the court imposed a community custody provision which included plethysmography - that is, measuring the blood flow of Big Johnson’s Little Johnson. Basically, it tests sexual arousal. Big Johnson didn’t want Little Johnson measured like that, so he challenged. 

The court noted that not every case involves using the device. It can’t be used as a monitoring tool, but it can be used as part of a treatment program. Because the trial court had also imposed sexual deviancy treatment, measuring the blood flow to Little Johnson was a-okay.
