Emanuel obtained a $2.3 million-dollar jury verdict for former MLB pitcher Greg Reynolds. Reynolds, from Pacifica, played at Stanford before playing in the Rockies, Rangers, and Reds organizations for 10 years. In July 2013, he pitched against the Giants at AT&T Park. Reynolds claimed his career was cut short on January 16, 2015, when he was attacked in front of his Half Moon Bay home by a man on LSD.

The man who attacked Reynolds was held liable along with Reynolds’ neighbor, who hosted the LSD party. Both defendants took LSD, but only one defendant attacked Reynolds. The defendant who hosted the LSD party contended he had no liability. After a three-week trial, the jury found both defendants liable for Reynolds’ injury and lost earnings.

Emanuel obtained $11 million for taxpayers from Marinello Schools of Beauty in a qui tam action filed by six whistleblowers, former employees of Marinello. Based on overlapping allegations, the United States Department of Education denied Marinello’s reapplication to receive federal student loan funds, forcing Marinello to close its doors. Prior to its closure, Marinello was one of the largest chains of for-profit beauty schools in the United States.
