State Court Vacates ‘Significant’ Damages Award, Saying It’s ‘Very Possible’ Jury Could Have Misinterpreted Verdict Slip |

The Iowa Court of Appeals has reversed a lower court’s denial of a new trial to BNSF Railway Company, reasoning that it was “very possible” the jury could have interpreted the verdict form incorrectly. 

The appeals court agreed to take up the case despite the fact that defense counsel had failed to object to what it later argued was an erroneous jury verdict slip.
