Motion For New Trial Or Rehearing
According to The Florida Bar, a motion for new trial is the most common motion made post-trial, in both civil and criminal matters.
A motion for new trial (or rehearing) may be the last chance to preserve errors for appeal.
A motion for new trial or rehearing must be filed within 15 days of the verdict or judgment. A new trial (or rehearing) may be granted to settle one or many issues. The party seeking the motion for new trial or rehearing must explain why this is being sought.
Why file a motion for a new trial or rehearing? If you believe an error was made in your previous trial, you can file a motion for new trial or rehearing to correct the error.
