Lindsey Boney has a truly varied practice that spans the substantive spectrum. He regularly represents pharmaceutical and medical device companies in national mass tort litigation. In particular, Lindsey has been a member of mass tort national counsel teams, particularly involving regulatory and legal strategy issues. This experience includes serving as lead appellate counsel at trial, briefing all sorts of legal issues in trial and appellate courts (dispositive motions, Daubert motions, and motions in limine), and preparing key regulatory witnesses for deposition. Lindsey has been involved in significant wins in the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Fifth and Eleventh Circuits, the Iowa Supreme Court, and the Missouri Court of Appeals.
Outside of the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, Lindsey has represented numerous national and international companies in a variety of matters, including:
Lindsey also has argued and won two significant pro bono appeals. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit appointed Lindsey as counsel for an inmate who appealed summary judgment on his Eighth Amendment civil claims against federal prison officials. In March 2014, following oral argument, the Eleventh Circuit reversed in a published opinion, and the case remains pending in the federal district court. Lindsey currently represents death-row inmate Clemente Aguirre. In April 2016, he argued Mr. Aguirre’s post-conviction appeal asking the Florida Supreme Court for a new trial in light of new DNA evidence and confessions by an alternative suspect. The Florida Supreme Court unanimously reversed Mr. Aguirre’s conviction and sentence in October 2016. The state of Florida intends to retry Mr. Aguirre.
Lindsey served as a law clerk to the Honorable William H. Pryor Jr. of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit (2009–2010). Before law school, Lindsey worked in full-time Christian ministry and lived in China for several years.
