Lewis Brisbois is pleased to present our January 21, 2021 webinar, "Nuclear Verdicts: Pre & Post-COVID." The COVID-19 health pandemic has impacted nearly every corporation and industry. As the civil litigation landscape changes, what will the future of nuclear verdicts look like post-pandemic?
Los Angeles Partner Dana A. Fox and New York Partner Alan Kaminsky will explore the factors that led to nuclear verdicts before the COVID-19 pandemic when disproportionately large verdicts grew at an alarming rate and how a possible shift in public opinion and worldviews due to COVID-19 may influence nuclear verdicts moving forward.
Moderated by Orange County Partner Esther P. Holm, the panelists will also delve into the efforts that certain industries are taking in order to change negative public perception and inherent bias against them. Such influences coupled with jurors' collective experiences with COVID-19 will very well affect juror decision making during deliberations and resulting damages awards.
