Ah, The Vagaries of Litigation

Read Trade Secret Jury Verdict : Redwood Health Services v. Clifford Der, dba Benefit Brokerage Services from The Trade Secrets Vault Blog to understand what I mean by vagary.

Verdict-Defendant : The jury found in favor of the plaintiff on the counts of breach of fiduciary duty and interference of contract, and awarded it $59,780. The jury found for Der on the counts of breach of contract and common counts, and awarded him $135,291.
I see here a good example of why cases settle rather than going to a jury and leaves me with questions of evidence.
