Morrison Mahoney Partner John P. Knight will be a panelist at the upcoming webinar, Current Events and the Courtroom: How Jurors Respond to Cultural Crises. The panel-style webinar is comprised of litigators, jury consultants, and psychologists from across the country who will explore the pandemic’s impact on litigation, how shifting juror attitudes may impact various types of litigation including product liability, personal injury, construction defect and more, and provide insight into how the pandemic and multiple quarantines have impacted potential jurors.
The virtual presentation will be held on Wednesday May 12, 2021 at 9:00am PDT / 12:00pm EDT.
John is a frequent presenter on this topic. Most recently, he authored an article, “COVID-19: Are More Conservative Verdicts a Possible Consequence of the Coronavirus Pandemic?” which was later cited in the ABA Journal’s “How will the 'Anthony Fauci effect' influence jurors?”
