CIVIL PROCEDURE - FIELDER V. CHANDLER
Fielder v. Chandler, [Ms. 2120223, Apr. 26, 2013] ___ So. 3d ___ (Ala. Civ. App. 2013). As a matter of first impression, and interpreting federal cases construing the parallel federal rule, the Court of Civil Appeals holds that a party can file a motion for a judgment as a matter of law after a mistrial. However, neither the granting of the mistrial nor the denial of the motion for judgment as a matter of law constituted a final judgment, so the appeal is dismissed.
