DIRECTED VERDICT

DIRECTED VERDICT:

This occurs at the close of a plaintiff’s case when a defendant can ask the court to rule that the plaintiff failed to produce sufficient evidence, when viewed in a light most favorable to the plaintiff, to support his or her claim. If the court rules in the defendant’s favor, the defendant is entitled to dismissal of plaintiff’s claim without having to put on any evidence. This also can occur at the close of defendant’s case when a plaintiff can ask the court to rule in his or her favor as to liability or special damages.
