Here are the five reasons: (Please see the original article for a more detailed explanation for each reason.)

1) "The case should have never gotten to a jury in the first place"

2) "The trial judge wrongfully excluded evidence"

3) "The trial judge erroneously allowed testimony on an inflated damages assessment"

4) "The trial judge should have taken more responsibility in interpreting the contract as a matter of law and precluded one of the claims"

and 5) "It was sued by the wrong entity"
