Financial Advisor Mismanagement Case

Dec 15, 2020
Experience

ThemeVision conducted a large-sample online mock juror survey in a business dispute involving alleged financial mismanagement. The plaintiff, a professional athlete, alleged that our client, a bank, had failed in its fiduciary duty to prevent the plaintiff’s business manager from handling his finances in an incompetent manner. Mock jurors read a written case summary and provided judgments about the evidence and appropriate verdict. Results were used to gauge the strength of our client’s case and identify a statistical profile of unfavorable jurors. The online survey was to be paired with an on-site ThemeTesting focus group study, but the case ended with a favorable settlement before the latter study was conducted.
