Last May, the Carney Appellate Team—led by Rory Cosgrove, Jason Anderson, and Sidney Tribe—served as appellate counsel for a national product manufacturer in a four-week jury trial in King County Superior Court.  The Carney Appellate Team assisted trial counsel in drafting motions in limine, supplemental briefing, objections to the plaintiffs’ proposed jury instructions, the client’s proposed jury instructions, and a halftime motion for judgment as a matter of law.  Through those efforts, the trial court granted in part the halftime motion and declined to submit three of the plaintiffs’ four claims to the jury.  And the jury ultimately rendered a complete defense verdict for the Carney Appellate Team’s client.
