    Post-Trial Considerations

    12 PM EDT

    The next episode of our teleconference series on best practices for managing litigation cases focuses on post-trial procedure and considerations. 

    You have put on your evidence and the jury agrees with you: your client has been wronged and is entitled to a judgment. Unfortunately, this storybook ending is not as neat as you would have hoped. A trial may give rise to a host of issues to be addressed post-trial, or there may be entirely new issues that arose outside of the trial that must be addressed.  What if new evidence is discovered?  What if a final judgment contains typographical errors?  What if you learn of foul play that occurred during a trial?  And don’t forget a determination of your attorney’s fees. There are myriad possibilities. Therefore, litigators cannot overlook post-trial procedures and considerations.  It is critical for litigators to know what can and cannot be accomplished post-trial, before the appeals stage, and the applicable time delays for taking action.  It is also important to be aware of ethical considerations regarding post-trial procedure.   Familiarity with post-trial procedures and considerations will help every litigator be able to advocate more effectively for his or her client.  

    Our panel will provide guidance, best practices, and share some of the lessons they have learned post-trial.  Topics of discussion will include:

    ·         Motions for new trial,

    ·         Grounds for granting a new trial,

    ·         Procedure in new trial,

    ·         Motions for judgment notwithstanding the verdict,

    ·         Reformation of the jury verdict,

    ·         Amending a judgment,

    ·         Annulling a judgment,

    ·         Applicable time delays for post-trial practices

    ·         Ethical considerations regarding post-trial practices

    ·         Other best practices and post-trial considerations

     

    Panelists:          Domenick Lazzara, Lee & Lazzara

                            Christina Liu Rosenberg, Chicago Park District
