Verdict, as defined by Black's Law Dictionary, is "a jury's finding or decisions on the factual issue of a case. Loosely, in a nonjury trial, a judge and resolution of the issue of a case." (8th edition)
As trial decisions are not officially reported, a legal researcher cannot rely on the regular case reporters to find verdicts and settlements. This guide lists the major sources of verdicts and settlements.
