THE GO-TO RESOURCE FOR SUCCESSFUL TRIAL LAWYERS
The Jury Verdict Reporter is the second-oldest business of its kind in the United States. Trial lawyers have come to rely on its detailed and objective reports to accurately evaluate their cases. It was founded in 1959 by newspaper reporter Max Sonderby to collect and publish summaries detailing civil jury verdicts and negotiated settlements. Law Bulletin purchased the business in 1991, and soon began computerizing the information. We now have a fully-searchable database with over 55,000 cases available in our digital platform Lawyerport. The Jury Verdict Reporter summarizes cases tried or settled, highlighting the factual situation that gave rise to the litigation. We provide details about the trial lawyers, judge, venue, case name and number, award amount, specific injuries, insurer that paid the verdict or settlement, and expert witnesses who testified. In addition, the Jury Verdict Reporter also offers “Custom Research,” our case research service in which our seasoned staff will, upon request, analyze our database according to supplied factual scenarios and compile a package of comparable Illinois cases. 2022 was an exciting year for the Jury Verdict Reporter and its subscribers! Our annual JVR Settlement Report, which reviewed roughly $1.27 billion in settlements, was published in the October issue of the Chicago Lawyer magazine. Law Bulletin Media’s legal portal, Lawyerport, which facilitates access to all Law Bulletin content including the Jury Verdict Reporter, continues to be utilized by thousands of Illinois attorneys and judges. And the Jury Verdict Reporter transitioned even more information to our weekly eNewsletter that features both verdicts and settlements.
