In this episode…

 Today’s episode is a viewer request.  I was asked to create a podcast on summary judgment and went right to the expert, Ryan Williams, of Mitchell Hamline School of Law and a member of the Kaplan Bar Prep faculty.  In this episode, he clearly explains summary judgment in a way that will be sure to help you excel on exams.

Some key takeaways are: 

1.     Summary judgment is a tool for courts to dispose of a case without holding a trial.

2.     A party is granted summary judgment if in light of the facts presented, a reasonable juror could only find for the moving party. 

3.     Either party can ask for summary judgment
