UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
February 25, 2011
JOSE SANTANA, PLAINTIFF,
LIEUTENANT CODY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge James B. Zagel
NOW COME the defendants, Jason Keeling and Harold Grimes, by and through their attorneys, LITCHFIELD CAVO, LLP, and pursuant to Rules 50(a) and 50(b) move for judgment as a matter of law or judgment notwithstanding the verdict. Alternatively, the defendants request that this court grant defendants a new trial, or alter or amend the judgment against defendants pursuant to FRCP 59(a) and (e). In support of their motion, the defendants submit their Memorandum of Law.
WHEREFORE, for the reasons set forth in the defendants' Memorandum of Law, submitted herewith, the defendants request that this court enter an order granting them judgment as a matter of law. Alternatively, defendants are entitled to a new trial, or to have the judgment altered or amended, because the evidence adduced at trial did not support the verdict against the defendants, plaintiff's inflammatory remarks deprived defendants of a fair trial, flawed jury instructions prejudiced defendants and the evidence introduced at trial does not justify the jury's assessment of compensatory damages.
