Edmondson vs. AMA Retrial To Determine Additional Damages May Be Scheduled As Soon As This May

The retrial to determine additional damages owed by the AMA to Roger Edmondson may be scheduled as soon as this May, and as late as this July, according to sources close to the case.<BR><BR>The courts have already confirmed that the AMA is guilty as charged in the Edmondson case, but an Appeals Court has ordered a new jury trial to determine the amount of money owed Edmondson for some of the AMA's actions.<BR><BR>The retrial will take place in the same courthouse and before the same judge--U.S. District Judge Lacy Thornburg--as did the original trial. At the retrial, jurors will again hear evidence concerning how the AMA wronged Edmondson, its former joint venture partner, but will not hear any claims of innocence from the AMA, since the Appeals Court has confirmed that the AMA did what Edmondson alleged the AMA did.<BR><BR>Edmondson is determined to maximize the amount of money he gets from the AMA and is unlikely to settle the case before the retrial.
