MDV Update: Better, But More to Go

Earlier this summer I reported on two cases involving drivers which resulted in MDV's. Saturday, I updated the East coast verdict, where a Florida judge granted a new trial. Today, I update the 2nd case from the West coast -- which also has undergone judicial revision -- Calif. Judge Slashes $61 Million FedEx Verdict. Although better, not nearly the same sigh of relief that would have been heard, if like in Florida, the court had granted a new trial. Instead, the court still entered a judgment of more than $12 million.

Still, this is just round one, and before plaintiffs receive anything more than psychic income, there are multiple appellate levels to traverse.
