Post-Trial Motions Affecting Judgments on Verdicts


Learn what options are available after the trial is over.

The trial is over; the jury has returned a verdict; and judgment on the verdict has been entered. The judgment on the verdict may be for the plaintiff; it may be for the defendant; or it may be mixed. What now? A party that is unhappy with the verdict generally has three immediate vehicles to affect a change in the judgment on the verdict. This white paper reviews those options, which are distinct, but not mutually exclusive and many times parties pursue multiple options.
