43rd Annual Torts Update 2020

Product ID: CA3017R9
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

A disrupted system

From the rise (and staying power) of remote proceedings to the spectrum of coverage issues caused by the pandemic, the 43nd Annual Torts Update will dive into COVID-19’s effects on civil litigation.

You’ll hear details regarding:

  • Status of Wisconsin courts — As the state moves to resume in-person proceedings, learn what safety measures are being utilized. Gain strategies for dealing with inconsistences across the state.
  • Remote lawyering — While the novel coronavirus birthed the necessity of virtual depositions and mediations to keep cases moving along, remote proceedings will likely outlast the pandemic. Discuss how to effectively present exhibits over web platforms. Explore why cases have been settling more quickly in remote settings.
  • New litigation — COVID-19 didn’t just shut down the courts; it shut down a plethora of “non-essential” businesses. Review trends in the flood of claims related to losses incurred from the novel coronavirus. Plus, examine the effects and limitations of temporary immunity granted to health care providers.
