One of the three men charged with killing Wayne Dover outside a Queensland nightclub in 2013 has been acquitted.
Blake Goldsworthy had been on trial in Brisbane Supreme Court alongside his brother Wade Goldsworthy and Matthew Hill after pleading not guilty to Mr Dover's manslaughter.
Blake Goldsworthy was acquitted on Monday after Justice Martin Burns found he had no case to answer.
The trial continued on Tuesday for his brother and Hill who each claim they were not responsible for Mr Dover's death.
Mr Dover, 45, died outside the Factory nightclub at Maroochydore in November 2013 after suffering a tear to a major artery in his neck as well as fractures to his right cheekbone and eye socket.
Crown prosecutor Phil McCarthy claimed Mr Dover died after a fight with Goldsworthy and Hill, both currently aged 30.
But in his closing address Hill's barrister Kila Pedder told the jury his client was nowhere near Mr Dover when he appeared to fall to the ground in obscured CCTV footage.
The court heard given Mr Dover was a "very big drunk man" he may have fallen from the momentum of his own weight and collided with tables and chairs on the way down.
Goldsworthy's lawyer Simon Lewis said the prosecutor was unable to say what led to Mr Dover's death only that some force had been used.
"If he wanted to dance around the word 'punch' anymore he would have gotten a gig in Mao's Last Dancer," Mr Lewis said.
Mr Lewis said if a punch was thrown it had come from Hill in an effort to defend Goldsworthy who was allegedly attacked by Mr Dover first.
Both defence lawyers told the jury to disregard the testimony of "unreliable" eyewitnesses who only gave specific descriptions matching Hill and the dreadlock-clad Goldsworthy some time after the event.
Justice Burns is expected to give his directions to the jury on Tuesday afternoon.
