Plaintiff provides the instant brief on the issue of whether bifurcation of the liability and damages phases of the trial of this action is necessary. Bifurcation is a judge’s ability in law to divide a trial into two parts so as to render a judgment on a set of legal issues without looking at all aspects. In a bifurcated case, the issues of liability and damages are decided separately. The trier of fact will only decide the issue of liability at the first trial. If the defendant is not found to be liable, then there will be no damages trial.
