After your trial is over and the jury has decided your case, it doesn’t mean your case is necessarily over. There are a variety of things that could still happen. For example, the trial judge could decide to set aside the jury verdict and enter a verdict based on what he or she believes the evidence has shown. And, if the losing party doesn’t accept the verdict, there could be an “Appeal”. An appeal process can be very lengthy and could take as long as a year to a year and a half to complete. No matter what the outcome of the trial, both sides have access to an appeal if they don’t think the verdict was correct.
