Directed verdict

A verdict handed down by a judge in a trial without consideration of the jury because the facts presented and the applicable law left no question as to the outcome necessary in the case. If the complaining party fails to prove a prima facie case by exhibiting the minimum elements necessary to show liability, the defendant can move for a directed verdict without offering a defense.
