Presented By: DRI and Courtoom Sciences, Inc
Defense attorneys across the nation are being bombarded with calls from their clients asking, “What the hell is going on with these crazy verdicts?” 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 and provide practical solutions to avoid nuclear fallout for defendants.
