Setting aside a jury verdict.

Practice point:  The verdict may not be set aside for legal insufficiency unless, based on the evidence, there is no valid line of reasoning and permissible inferences which could possibly lead rational jurors to the conclusion the jury reached.

Case in point:  Foley v. City of New York, NY Slip Op 04389 (1st Dep't June 6, 2017)

Here is the decision.

Tomorrow's issue:  CPLR 3101(a).
