In an attempt to determine post-verdict trends, the National Law Journal investigates "100 cases from 1997 involving jury awards of $1 million or more, including all the largest verdicts of that year" and tracks down the after-verdict action. The special report consists of 66 case stories that tell "what happened ... after jury went home." The other 34 stories can be found on the journal's website. The package reveals that most often the first verdict is erased in the further appellate process, and the plaintiffs end up with comparatively meager settlement amounts.
