    Hryniak v. Mauldin and the Future of the Litigation Process (9 Minute Read)

    A twist in the road?

    The vast majority of civil cases settle before trial.  Most lawyers estimate the number to be higher than 90%.  That is consistent with my own experience, which is that most cases settle through a process of negotiation (sometimes involving mediators, sometimes not) that occurs several months before trial.  2 or 3 times per year, I prepare for trial and the case settles a few days before the trial begins – sometimes the night before.  Once or twice a year, I find myself wearing my robes on a Monday morning, starting a trial.
