The panel will address the legal landscape of medical monitoring, with some jurisdictions treating it as a remedy and some as an independent claim, but all requiring underlying misconduct. The panel will address the ALI Restatement (Third) of Torts, how medical monitoring is administered and supervised, and insurance coverage
