Partner Peter Dubrawski is speaking on panel, “Nuclear Verdicts: What the $*!& is Going On?,” during ALFA International’s Transportation Seminar in Rancho Palos Verdes, California on May 6, 2022

Program Description

The emergence of the nuclear verdict is currently the hottest topic of discussion in civil litigation for both the plaintiff and defense bars. There are several factors to blame, including: 1) juror psychosocial factors, 2) growing litigation funding for plaintiff attorneys, 3) slow development of young defense attorneys, 4) political influences, 5) growth of Reptile tactics, 6) distrust of corporations, and 7) generational factors. This program will outline the influence of these factors on nuclear verdicts, provide practical solutions to avoid nuclear fallout for defendants, and will cover the impact of COVID-19, politics, and social injustice/unrest on juries.
