The future and impact of virtual litigation - Trial by Zoom

COVID-19 has seen worldwide disruption to all aspects of our life. For the insurance industry, this has been felt in a variety of ways, but the most challenging area has been for claims held up within the judicial system.

AUDIENCE

This session is intended for all adjusters who handle claims throughout the United States. Open to LMA members only.

DESCRIPTION

With large caseloads escalating after a sustained period of closure, the US Judicial System has implemented fully virtual trials which have successfully resulted in cases being resolved. As an effective way of eliminating the backlog and with other jurisdictions expected to follow suit, we invite Scheer.Law to share their recent experience of conducting a case virtually.

The session will cover the following points:

  • mechanics of how virtual hearings and trials are being held
  • how juries are picked virtually
  • opening statements
  • testimony
  • closing
  • deliberations
  • potential issues for appeal
  • what we would do differently next time
  • overview of other virtual jury trials
  • the disadvantages of virtual trials
  • the advantages of virtual trials and how to maximize your ability to defend a case that is going to virtual trial.

Hosted by Partners from Scheer.Law PLLC Mark Scheer, Jennifer Crow and Joseph Hogan will address the topics outlined with specific examples

This event requires membership. Please visit the organiser's website for more information.
