Missouri Lawyers Weekly publishes "Verdict & Settlement Reports" to assist lawyers in judging the value of cases and to research names of cases, lawyers and experts.

Some reports are based on information provided by a lawyer in the case, and others are based on court records and the newspaper's reporting. Once an attorney submits a report, it becomes the property of Missouri Lawyers Media and may not be rescinded. The newspaper uses the submission to inform the article, but reporters will contact opposing counsel, review court filings and otherwise further report on the case. Cases tried in open court may not contain confidential information. If an attorney wishes to submit a confidential settlement, he or she should verify the information being disclosed with opposing counsel before submitting the report.

To be published, a report must:
  • Include the name of the case, the court name and docket number.
  • Include the date of the verdict or settlement, the name of the judge, the amount of the verdict or settlement, and, if it is a defense verdict, the plaintiff's last pretrial demand. This information cannot be withheld from publication.
  • Include the names of the lawyers for all of the parties. Names of lawyers from both sides will be published.
  • Provide a description of the case that contains facts of the case, interesting arguments made, novel legal approaches, etc.
  • List contact information of the lawyer submitting the report and the opposing counsel.
  • If parties agreed to a confidential settlement, Missouri Lawyers Weekly may, in appropriate cases, withhold the names of the parties from the published version - but the information must be provided to us initially so we can be sure that such a case did exist. If the parties' names are to be withheld as part of a confidential settlement, we will need to have the dollar amount of the settlement for publication.
  • Have a connection to Missouri. Priority is given to cases tried or settled in Missouri state or federal courts. Failing that, a Missouri-based attorney must have been involved on either the plaintiff or defense side to qualify for publication.
