TRIAL SEARCH (Research Service).
The TRIALS DIGEST PUBLISHING INC. phone-in research service, trade named TRIAL SEARCH offers valuable information supplied by litigators throughout California on the details and outcomes of California Superior Court and U.S. District Court civil trials. Each trial report located in a search contains comprehensive data on the type of case, amount and nature of the verdict or judgment rendered, the presiding judge, attorneys, expert witnesses, the facts of the case, description of the damages and/or injuries claimed by the plaintiff, pre-trial settlement demands and offers by the opposing sides, case commentary, jury deliberation, and venue. The following represent a few typical examples of the many valuable applications of TRIAL SEARCH.
  1. Find comparable cases and injuries to place dollar values on pending civil cases. Empirically based values can then be used to negotiate more favorable settlements, moderate expectations of clients, and to perform cost/benefit analysis for claims and litigation management decisions.
  2. Investigate the backgrounds of expert witnesses who you might wish to retain for your case or to investigate the background of, and develop impeachment material on, those expert witnesses who are scheduled to testify against you.
  3. Examine the trial history of judges or attorneys to decide when to dismiss a particular judge or develop valuable tactical information in advance of your court appearance. Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your opposing counsel.
  4. Save time in discovery by identifying cases with similar injuries, damages claims, product liability issues, or other significant issues of importance in order to access court files or to consult with experts or attorneys in those cases.
  5. Prepare for your next expert deposition or cross-examination by reviewing prior testimony of expert witnesses from our library of 32,000 deposition transcripts.
