Selimanovic v. Finney, 337 S.W.3d 30 (Mo. Ct. App. 2011)

The plaintiffs sued their former attorney for malpractice.  After a lengthy trial a jury awarded them $2,000,000.  Michael Gross was hired to rewrite the defendant’s motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict and his alternative motion for a new trial.  The trial court denied the motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict but granted the motion for a new trial.  The plaintiffs appealed.  The Court of Appeals held that the defendant had been entitled to judgment notwithstanding the verdict and ordered the trial court to grant that relief.
