THE TOWN OF CICERO'S RENEWED MOTION FOR JUDGMENT AFTER TRIAL

I. PRELIMINARY STATEMENT
At the close of Plaintiff's case on trial and after Plaintiff rested his case, Defendants made a written motion for Judgment as a Matter of Law (See attached motion). The Court took Defendants' motion under advisement. Then, Defendants presented their case in defense of Plaintiff's claims, and thereafter Defendants rested their cases. Plaintiff offered nothing in rebuttal. Defendants now, pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 50(b), renew their motion for a judgment as a matter of law.
Defendants restate the matters and arguments contained in their Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 50(a) motion as and for this Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 50(b) motion. Additionally, Defendants submit this motion together with their motions pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59.
Defendant Cicero is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law. Wherefore, Cicero requests the Court to grant this motion and enter judgment as a matter of law in its favor and against Plaintiff.
