Asbestos Judges, Attorneys Holding Judicial Forum June 3
Date:4/28/2009

NEW YORK, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Judges and attorneys from around the country handling thousands of asbestos lawsuits will gather in New York on June 3 for a conference and webcast on effectively managing this massive litigation and fostering a better understanding of asbestos trusts.

The program - entitled the "Judicial Forum on Asbestos" - is being produced by HB Litigation Conferences LLC, formerly Mealey's Conferences.

The chairmen are Perry Weitz of Weitz & Luxenberg of New York and John Cooney of Cooney & Conway of Chicago, both prominent asbestos plaintiff attorneys. Selection of the defense chair is under way.

As of today, HB has confirmed participation by the following judges: Hon. Sherry Klein Heitler, New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Term; Hon. Sandra Mazer Moss, Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas; Hon. Mark Davidson, Harris County, Houston, Texas; Hon. Daniel Stack, Circuit Judge, Madison County, Edwardsville, Illinois; Hon. James McBride, California Superior Court in San Francisco. Invitations are out to judges in several other states with high volumes of asbestos litigation.

The agenda continues to be developed, but so far the panel will address state and federal cooperation in the litigation, operational and disclosure issues surrounding the trusts, an overview of the hottest areas of the litigation, jury selection, managing juror issues, and much more.

Judges taking part in the event will address, along with the attorney participants: managing massive caseloads, motions to consolidate, private agreements, standstill agreements, differentiated case management ideas, preference vs. non-preference, expedited cases, wrongful death vs. death, two-disease states, non-malignancy cases, cancer vs. non-cancer cases and more.
