    Dan Webb says he's disappointed, will file post-trial motions to overturn the verdict, will file appeals.

    Says that jury deliberations are cause for appeal.

    •  I think Dan Webb is done with this case. (2+ / 0-)

      Ryan is broke and Webb and his firm have spent millions out of their own pockest on this "show trial."

      I would be surprised to see Webb continue.

        were just reporting that someone who was suspiously absent from this trial was former governor, Jim Thompson; also a partner at Winston Strawn.  He didn't even appear as a character witness.  They believe that there is a great deal of dissention at Winston Strawn due to the high cost of this trial, which is all pro bono.  Will be interesting to see if Mr. Webb goes forward with the appeals process, or if someone knew comes in.

          nowadays, I think of a New Yorker cartoon in which one lawyer is saying to another "Understand, the reason we can do the pro bono work is because the anti bono work pays so well."
          That cartoon was created by the husband of current Illinois Attorney General (and future govenor?) Lisa Madigan.

          Turning water into wine is just going to give them an entitlement mentality.

        His attorney fees are pro bono.
