The use of media at trial is certainly more the norm than the exception. In fact, jury surveys indicate that plaintiff's use of media does not offend, as one might think, or make jurors believe plaintiff's attorney is being excessive. Rather jurors expect the use of technology and view it as responsible when used by either side. The same can be said for preempting the need for a trial altogether by putting together the strongest possible presentation for ADR and mediation, with the goal of prompting a settlement. What does a video bring to the table? Simply, there is no other medium that will effectively communicate the non-economic damages of your case like the emotional sledgehammer of a well-produced DVD documentary.
