Voir Dire and Peremptory Challenges

     The purpose of this short blog is simply to shed some light on some of the Nevada rules regarding jury voir dire in civil trials.  In Nevada, both sided of the case are afforded unlimited for cause challenges followed by four peremptory challenges.  If there are multiple parties on one side of the case, and these parties have diverse interests then the court may allow up to four peremptory challenges per party.  Note that the parties are free to stipulate to allowing one another to exercise more than the normal and customary four peremptory challenges.  This could be a decidedly useful

Voir Dire and Cause Challenges

     Some lawyers will say that voir dire is one of, if not the most, important segments of your jury trial.  I have noticed however that some attorneys seem to take voir dire for granted, spending little time in voir dire or seemingly unconcerned with the voir dire process.  I have to agree with those attorneys who emphasize the importance of the voir dire practice.  You can put on the best plaintiff’s case imaginable and end up with a defense verdict if you have the wrong jurors deciding the outcome of your case.  Remember that even one bad juror can defeat your case, especially if that b

Visceral Communication in Trial

     Trials are complicated affairs.  Trials by their very nature require a unique and often disjointed means of presentation.  Moreover, trials often take days if not weeks to conclude.  Given these circumstances, combined with the short attention spans of today’s jurors, it is incumbent upon us as trial lawyers to do all we can to steal the attention of our jurors.  To do this we can look to the teachings of theater.  Trial consultant David Ball, who has a strong background in theater, instructs us to use the same concepts, employed for ages in theater, in our trials.  To accomplish this

Respondeat Superior/Vicarious Liability

     Many intentional torts are committed by employees working for a corporation or a company while on the job.  For example, in the typical case, a security guard at a hotel or apartment complex may use excessive force on a customer or tenant resulting in injury.  Less typical are those cases where a clerk at a convenience store, for example, gets in a fight with a customer causing injury to that customer.  Traditionally, such intentional torts were said to be “independent ventures” or even “frolics” on the part of the employee that did not expose the employer to liability under a theory o

Understanding Jurors, Beyond Voire Dire

     During the voire dire process we, as lawyers, need to take extra care to determine what attitudes and opinions each of our potential jurors carry with them.  We know that we cannot change the attitudes of our jurors during the trial process.  Attitudes are formed by prior life experiences.  Once these attitudes are formed they are resilient.  Given this fact, we do our best to excuse any and all jurors who possess attitudes which are inconsistent with the issues and facts of our case.  However, there will be times when we have to keep the lesser of evils on our jury panel given our cau

Understanding Juror Perspective

     As lawyers preparing for trial we naturally form biases.  As plaintiff’s lawyers these biases are usually in favor of our client.  We get to know our clients’ on a personal level and we thus view our client and what our client says in a light which may differ from that of the jurors who view the trial.  In addition to this we, as lawyers, come from different and various backgrounds.  The jurors who sit and view our trials come from an array of different demographic backgrounds.  Some jurors are educated some jurors are not educated.  Some jurors were raised in urban areas others in rur

Liability for Excessive Force Committed by Private Security

     Tales of Police Officers run amok abound as do the civil consequences of such behavior.  State civil and federal courts regularly here matters such as where a Plaintiff seeks to hold the local or state government liable for the brutality of its law enforcement arm.  Liability in these cases is fairly straightforward; that is, the State is bound by both federal constitutional and statutory law, as well as its own laws, to certain proscribed conduct with respect to the use of force, detention, due process and the like. 

 

Crimes Committed by Employees Against Customers

     What happens when a company employee physically assaults and injures a customer while that customer is on the company’s premises, such as in a store?  The first consideration is for what purpose that customer is on the company’s premises?  Is the customer shopping?  Is he trespassing?  Obviously, the business in question has a higher duty to protect those it invites onto their premises to make money.  But what if, in service to his master, an employee believes a customer is trespassing, even though he may have initially entered the premises legitimately, and forcibly eject
