An evidentiary standard allowing a trial judge
to set aside a jury’s judgment or verdict and order a new trial when it clearly
appears to the judge that the jury’s decision is unsupported by the credible
evidence presented at trial; is based upon false evidence or some improper
motive, bias, or feelings; or would result in a miscarriage of justice.
However, this does not permit a judge to substitute the jury’s decision with
his own merely because he disagrees with the decision.
