Baltimore & Carolina Line, Inc. v. Redman
tl;dr: Once a case goes to a jury, the judge can’t enter a judgement contrary to the jury’s verdict (Slocum), unless the judge has “expressly reserved judgement” on a JMOL motion. In that case, the judge had submitted the case to the jury subject to his decision on the JMOL.
