Plaintiffs often lose cases they should win. These cases are often lost due to jury bias, not the actual strength of the evidence. The Jury Bias Litigation Group is cochaired by Jerome F. O'Neill and the creators of the Jury Bias Model™ David A. Wenner and Gregory S. Cusimano. Together they will educate members about how jury bias in tort cases impacts jury verdict preferences.
