44th Annual Torts Update 2021

Product ID: CA3201R6
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

Welcome to TortsCenter

From an analysis of product liability since the adoption of the Restatement 3rd of Torts to affirmation of dangerous dog exclusions in insurance policies, the 44th Annual Torts Update shares recent case law on an array of topics in tort litigation in a quick-hitting format.

You’ll discuss details regarding:

  • Immunities — How does a recent decision involving immunity for property owners in cases of trespassing affect immunity cases in general?
  • Duty to Defend — How have insurance companies’ obligations changed in light of Choinsky v. Employers Mutual?
  • 628.46 Interest — Why was the case cited in a recent decision involving the "timely payment of claims statute" a bit surprising?
