Morrison Mahoney Partner Michael Aylward will be presenting on an upcoming Zoom panel discussion titled "Going Viral: Insurance Litigation and the COVID-19 Crises" sponsored by the Dartmouth Lawyers Association.
In the wake of the economic devastation caused by COVID-19, insurance litigation is going viral. Lawsuits seeking business interruption coverage for COVID-19-related losses are multiplying, and plaintiffs’ lawyers are trying to consolidate lawsuits in a multidistrict litigation. Meanwhile, federal and state lawmakers have proposed legislation that would retroactively mandate business interruption coverage—raising the prospect of serious constitutional challenges. These developments raise important questions about the distribution of catastrophic loss and the role of insurance in our economic system. Dartmouth Lawyers Association is bringing together a panel of Dartmouth experts for a webinar on the wave of insurance litigation sparked by COVID-19.
The webinar will take place on June 3, 2020 at 5 PM EST. Click here for more information.
