Reasons for re-opening a case

You may have gone into a court battle initially believing that your first verdict would be it. This is a very common misconception when it comes to court battles revolving around commercial or civil litigation. However, if you have a reason to contest the verdict that you are initially handled, it is more than possible to do so.

There are many different reasons that you may wish to have a second go at a trial if the first outcome was unfavorable to you. You may have new evidence to support your case. You may have crafted a more persuasive presentation, or run across new findings that could turn the tide in your favor. In order to do so, there are different types of appeals or motions that could be made. Some motions include:

  •          A motion for a new trial
  •          A motion to amend findings
  •          A motion for judgment or to amend judgment

Other motions can involve attorney fees. However, the most common are the above listed reasons. If you disagree with the verdict, that alone could be enough to allow you to re-open your case. Additional findings that could help support you are usually recommended due to the fact that it gives the court new information to work with.
