First District: Plaintiffs’ Directed Verdict Motions

In many if not most civil trials, the defendant moves for a directed verdict against the plaintiff, at least in part, at the close of the plaintiff’s case-in-chief.

Less often, the plaintiff moves for a directed verdict in the plaintiff’s own favor at the close of the defendant’s case.

This case demonstrates the importance of the latter type of motion. The First District applied the rear-end collision rule to reverse a defense verdict, holding that the rear car driver in a collision was negligent as a matter of law.

By the way, does anyone know which Florida judge was the first to use the term “rear-end collision rule,” and when?

Hint: A good judge, and a good year.

UPDATE: The court withdrew its original opinion and released this revised one.
