Lieff Cabraser attorney Abby R. Wolf will be speaking at the American Bar Association’s 2020 Environmental & Energy, Mass Torts, and Products Liability Litigation Committees’ Joint Regional CLE Program taking place from January 29-31, 2020 at The Westin Snowmass Resort in Colorado. Abby will be featured on the panel “Mass Torts Committee Breakout: Public Nuisance Law and Its Impact on the Opioid Litigation and Future Mass Torts” on Friday, January 31st from 10:30-11:30am.
Abby and the other panelists will provide a variety of perspectives on the public nuisance doctrine, including how it is defined and when it should be used. Public nuisance comes up in many large cases over the pressing social issues of the day, from pollution, to handguns, to the opioid epidemic. The panel will also focus on the myriad of lawsuits filed in response to the opioid crisis, and how these claims have affected the public nuisance doctrine on broader legal and societal levels.
