Mitchell represents the Walkers, the Ottos, and the Burnells in a lawsuit. He is counting on Nichole's testimony because she can be portrayed as the ultimate victim. He also intends to subpoena Billy to testify that Dolores was not driving over the speed limit although he does not know whether this is true. His strategy seems to be to tell both Dolores and Billy that the other needs confirmation that they were driving fifty-two miles per hour; Mitchell hopes that they will both agree to that story because he needs for them to agree in court although neither is sure how fast they were going.
