Damages Part II – How Jurors Make Decisions About Damages
Presented by Paul Jepsen, DecisionQuest

How do jurors make decisions about complex quantitative issues such as damages? Our findings can assist litigators in presenting damages arguments that are compelling for jurors. Various models of juror decision-making regarding this issue are discussed, along with recommendations for improving your presentation techniques. Issues related to both compensatory and punitive damages are addressed.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
