New Trial Motions after Summary Judgment
Over at the California Blog of Appeal, Greg May asks:
Can you move for a new trial when your case was disposed of by summary judgment? This question undoubtedly causes some degree of cognitive dissonance in many lawyers: a new trial when there was no trial?
Greg answers, Yes, of course. --RR
What does the term "new trial" (Civil) mean when filing a motion for a new trial?If filed after granting of a summary judgement is granted. Where does the new trial begin?
