Yes they can. The substance of all of the remedies are still available. The form is just in a complaint and answer instead of a Petition, Return, Reply, rebutter, surrebutter, rejoinder, surrejoinder.
And the judgment, remittur and all post trial procedures still follow the basic process of the common law. And if the judge believes that the judgment should be modified, and the prevailing party does not accept the modification, then the only way it can be changed is according to the course of the common law, which is a new trial.
