I don't know if Ohio allows remittitur, but that would be a post-trial motion.

There's a whole pile of stuff that can done between verdict and appeal. They don't have those where you are?

Motion for a new trial would be an appellate remedy, not a trial remedy.

Judgment n.o.v. and remittur both relate to jury verdicts. Civil jury trials are very rare here, so I don't know if we have an equivalent.

What's the rest of the "whole pile of stuff" that is done in the trial court after verdict?
