General Board / FRCP 50 Question. Anyone up for it?
« on: April 18, 2011, 08:59:08 PM »
So, under 50(c)(1) it says that if a judge grants a renewed JMOL he must also decide on any motion for a new trial (the any previous reason standard) in case the JMOL is reversed at a later date.  It seems to me that a judge's standard for when to grant a new trial would be lower than granting a JMOL because he is giving a jury another crack at it rather than being so sure that a reasonable jury couldn't find for the party that he puts himself in the position of the jury.  So in practice, when a judge grants a renewed JMOL is there any reason that he would not also conditionally grant a new trial? 
Thanks for any help.

My property prof. said "God I wish they had math on the LSAT" last semester when a student couldn't figure out some basic math for adverse possession.  We all thought it was hilarious but the kid it was directed at didn't think so.

I'm Caucasian.  I'm a non-traditional student in that I'm 31, have an extensive work history in professional positions (I haven't been working at Wal-Mart in other words), and I am extremely involved in my community (on our Rotary Club board of directors, Jr. Chamber of Commerce, etc.).  I'll have a MPA in the spring (Public Administration) with a great GPA (3.8 or better).  I don't know if this stuff even matters but I'm throwing it out there.

Because of my wife's career, USC is really the only option.  Chas. School of Law is a possibility but not an attractive one.  What do you think?  Should I be concerned?  Go ahead, hurt my feelings.

So do you think that's it?  Website is obviously dead...it's 9:00...it doesn't look good.  Has anyone seen anything in the last hour or so?

I could see doing it by state.  Even alphabetical order by state.  But by the last letter of the state...probably not. 

So, anyone know what states have been released.

yeah, that makes absolutely no sense.  I can't even figure out how you'd do that on excel.  I call BS

The website is dying a slow painful death and I am likely the reason.  Too bad...today I'm part of the problem.  I've got the rest of my life to be part of the solution.

Here's a relevant question.  If you just refresh the LSAT Status page does the score show up.  Throughout the day I have alternated between just refreshing the page and logging out entirely.  I'm a little afraid to log out now though because the site is so screwy.
