Judge Doesn’t Care Who Wins or Loses
NY Car Accident Attorney Gerry Oginski Explains
NY Car Accident & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer
In cases that involve jury trials including medical malpractice cases, car accident cases and wrongful death cases, did you know that the judge in charge of your trial doesn’t care who wins or who loses?
The judge plays no part whatsoever in coming to a decision about whether we have shown that we are more likely right than wrong that what we are claiming is true.
Instead, that is the jury’s function.
The jury, comprised of six people from the community who are required to reach a decision about whether we have shown that we are more likely right than wrong that what we are claiming is true.
The judge has a separate function.
The judge is in charge of how the case progresses.
The judge is in charge of what evidence is admitted.
The judge is in charge of what testimony is presented.
The judge is in charge of scheduling and making rulings of law.
The judge does not even offer an opinion to the jury about who he believes is entitled to a verdict. If he were to give the jury an opinion, that would be reversible error on appeal.
