Litigation Committee of the YLD has expanded its weekly jury trial
email service to include criminal trials as of Nov. 2, and has added a
new service entitled Iowa Jury Verdict Reporter. The weekly emails are
designed primarily for YLD members to help them become skilled trial
attorneys through participating in, or watching, jury trials. It is also
available to members of the ISBA’s Litigation and Alternate Dispute
Iowa Jury Verdict Reporter is a collection of Iowa civil jury verdicts.
It allows attorneys to search hundreds of cases to view comparable
verdicts and sample documents used within the cases. With that
information, attorneys can:
- Assess the value of a case;
- Support a demand or offer;
- Evaluate whether an opposition’s offer is reasonable, and decide whether to take a case to trial or settle;
- Access actual pre-trial filings, motions in limine, trial briefs and jury instructions.
the weekly email notifications are only available to the
above-mentioned groups, any ISBA member can access the Iowa Jury Verdict
Reporter database at this link.
