Add comment on:Mehserle Trial Motion JNOV
A Motion for Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict, or JNOV is rumored to have been filed at the Mehserle trial, which Superior Court Judge Robert Perry could rule on today. If he denies this motion, jury instructions will be argued between defense and prosecution as scheduled. It is not certain at this point which side made the motion, though it is likely the defense as it seems they had made an earlier motion for Directed Verdict which was denied, a prerequisite for filing a JNOV.
