The View From The Bench: The Judges Speak on the Evolving Landscape of Asbestos Litigation
Tuesday, May 22, 2018 | 8:15 AM CST

In this session, experienced judges will explore the evolving landscape of asbestos litigation. They will provide insights on so-called “hellhole” jurisdictions and hotbed states to give practitioners an idea of where the next wave of litigation will surface. They will also explore common dilemmas with expert testimony, Daubert/Frye motions, and the resulting challenges. Attend this session and understand how asbestos litigation unravels in the courtroom – as well as how to correct this unravelling from the vantage point of experienced judges who handle these cases on a daily basis.
