On January 23, 2013, ELI and ALI CLE cosponsored a panel comprised of counsel currently engaged in litigation on behalf of plaintiffs, defendants, and a regulatory body to examine recent and pending cases, including: who’s bringing what cases and how they are being decided; claims and defenses asserted and chances of success; dealing with attempts to try cases in the media; likely future trends in litigation; and impacts of agency findings on litigation.
