Ginsberg v. Williams case brief summary

Ginsberg v. Williams case brief
1965 Minnesota 

Facts: Suit for damages of a car accident; defendant won in jury trial with plaintiff moving for new trial. Court granted motion in the interests of justice. Defendant moved to stop the new trial under Rule 59 of Minnesota Civ Pro since that sets out the only grounds for new trial

Reasoning: Minnesota supreme granted because Rule 59 is comprehensive and needs no other reasons. A new trial for a new rule is arbitrary and a review would not be available which is unfair. It is too subjective and should not stand. Too subjective, reversed.
