Definition: Compromise Verdict




What is the dictionary definition of Compromise Verdict?

Dictionary Definition


n. a decision made by a jury in which the jurors split the difference between the high amount of damages which one group of jurors feel is justified and the low amount other jurors favor. Since this is a “chance” verdict not computed on a careful determination of the damages, it may do an injustice to one party or the other, and is thus misconduct, which can result in an appeals court overturning the verdict.
