On November 11, Attorney LaFramboise presented a virtual panel titled “Looking Forward: Civil Justice Issues in the Next Administration and New Congress” in which he discussed the plaintiffs’ bar perspective on our time’s most pressing civil justice issues, as well as how the newly elected United States Congress and presidential administration may address them. Among other topics, he covered proposed corporate immunity for COVID-19 related injuries and legislative and judicial developments related to forced arbitration, qualified immunity, and immunity for tech platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
The Law & Economics Center organized the Civil Justice Fest, officially referred to as the “Fourteenth Annual Judicial Symposium on Civil Justice Issues,” to discuss the “constant state of flux” of the country’s civil justice system. With myriad issues boiling to the surface in 2020, the aim of the virtual event was to aid judges and practitioners in navigating the ever-changing landscape of this year and its upcoming aftermath. Thus, Attorney LaFramboise’s panel provided professional insight into an imperative topic at the forefront of many people’s minds.
