Virginia Lawyers Weekly will be publishing its annual compendium of the top verdicts and top settlements in January and February.
If you have not yet submitted a verdict or settlement for 2019, please do so by Friday, Dec. 27.
We will be publishing a list of million-dollar results for both categories. The criteria for verdicts, as in years past, is for the result of a trial to have been handed down in Virginia state or federal court. For settlements, as before, the case should be based on a Virginia matter, whether suit actually was filed in a Virginia court or not.
Digital editor’s note: A case doesn’t need to have been published in Virginia Lawyers Weekly in order for it to qualify for inclusion in the million-dollar verdicts or million-dollar settlements compilations. Any cases submitted throughout the year that meet the qualifying criteria, but haven’t been published, will be included. It’s also strongly encouraged that you email email@example.com to make sure all your qualifying reports are accounted for.
We also are seeking case results that did not reach the million-dollar threshold, including defense verdicts, for regular publication.
Our weekly Verdicts & Settlements column remains one of the best tools available for litigators – both plaintiffs’ and defense counsel – to determine the value of a case for trial or settlement in Virginia.
Please submit your case using our online portal at https://valawyersweekly.com/submit-a-verdict-settlement-report/
Thanks for your help and participation!
