Case Caption: Liat v. CherubinCase Number: SCT-CIV-2019-0047Date: 12/05/2022Author: Hodge, Rhys S. Citation: 2022 VI 21Summary: In an appeal from the Superior Court’s denial of a renewed motion for judgment as a matter of law and its motion for a new trial after a jury found the defendant regional airline liable to a former employee, the judgment is affirmed. The Superior Court committed no error when it denied the defendant’s renewed motions for judgment as a matter of law and for a new trial. Plaintiff introduced sufficient evidence that, if credited by the jury, supported a finding that the defendant had terminated him due to his age. Plaintiff also introduced sufficient evidence to demonstrate an entitlement to compensatory damages for mental anguish, and the record contains no indication that passion or prejudice on the part of the jurors contributed to the verdict. Accordingly, the Superior Court’s May 19, 2019 opinion and order are affirmed.Attachment: Open Document or Opinion
