License suspensions can happen in many ways. For whatever reason you face license suspension, it’s essential to contest it to the best of your abilities. To do that, Monks Law Firm is here to provide you with the best legal consulting in the greater Houston area. Challenging violations and suspensions alone can be especially tricky when facing judgment as a matter of law (JMOL). If the plaintiff calls for this particular motion, your battle becomes increasingly troubling and confusing. Don’t worry. Monks Law Firm can help with judgments as well. All we need is a shot to prove it.
What Is Judgment As A Matter Of Law?
Judgment as a matter of law is a movement that claims that the opposition does not have enough evidence to support their case accurately. JMOL can occur during trial, unlike other judgments that occur before or after discovery and pleading. The defendant can move for judgment after the plaintiff states their case, or the plaintiff can make the same motion once the defendant asserts their claim. JMOL can also be motioned after the verdict has returned. If the action is approved, the directed verdict determines that no reasonable jury would return in the opposition’s favor.
How Does This Affect Me?
When facing license suspension for any reason, the plaintiff can move for a JMOL if you go about it alone. Without sufficient evidence to back up your contention, you may face a directed verdict and lose your appeal. Monks Law Firm is all too familiar with these judgments and are prepared to provide evidence to keep the opposition from making these kinds of claims. Even better, if the state doesn’t have enough evidence to challenge your case, we can make the motion ourselves, saving you from license suspension. This way, we keep you on the road and hassle-free.
