Writer’s Note: Before reading the following, please check out our previous report regarding the Jeff Jarrett versus Anthem Media Trial provided here.
In a report provided by PWInsider, the official order of mistrial declares that the ruling was made due to “cumulative errors by both the Court and counsel resulted in neither party receiving a fair trial.” Those reasons were listed as including but not limited to the following:
(1) the Court’s failure to instruct on comparative negligence;
(2) the identity of the wrong entity in the verdict form on the counterfeiting claim;
(3) improper comments by Defendant’s counsel in opening statements; and
(4) improper statements by Plaintiffs’ counsel in closing arguments, all of which were discussed in detail in the Court’s oral ruling.
A new trial date is set to be scheduled on September 11th, 2020.
