Highlight

A trial court's decision to grant or deny a new trial for an excessive damage verdict is discretionary and will not be overturned unless an abuse of discretion has been demonstrated. It is presumed that a damage verdict is proper, and this presumption is overcome only when the jury's verdict is so excessive that it shocks the conscience of the court.
A court may impose reasonable restrictions upon the length of the trial or hearing and upon the number of witnesses allowed.
