The Jury Verdict Reporter was founded in 1959, and is the second oldest business of its kind in the U.S. JVR collects and publishes summaries detailing civil jury verdicts and negotiated settlements, information used to simplify case evaluation.

JVR provides the most comprehensive resource for Illinois civil verdict and settlement information. Our database contains over 75,000 cases and is available through our custom-tailored On Point Research service and our digital service Lawyerport.

The JVR newsletters summarize cases tried or settled in Illinois, highlighting the factual situation that gave rise to the litigation. We note the trial lawyers, judge, case name and number, award amount, specific injuries, insurer that paid the verdict or settlement, and expert witnesses that testified. See our weekly summary of selected verdicts and settlements, or request a sample issue – please include name, firm/company, address and phone in your email request.
