ABA Mid-year Meeting Disaster Panels Were Great

The TIPS Disaster Panels held today in New Orleans were great. The first panel moderated by Allan Kanner took us through how courts litigants, and insurers view and address mass tort disasters. Professor McGovern, Judge Rosenthal, and Ted Henke were all thoughtful and informative on a wide range of issues concerning managing mass tort disasters. The second panel moderated by Jennifer Kilpatrick gave us an intimate look at how a disaster like Katrina affects the courts, the judges, and access to justice. Judges Robley and Landrieu shared their very personal experiences and the lessons learned by both the state and federal courts that apply to any judicial system after a disaster.   Read the article about this panel on the ABA Journal's website by clicking here.
