Asbestos Trusts, Asbestos Judges Featured at Two HB Events Dec. 2 & 3
Date:10/6/2009

NEW YORK, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Between $30 billion and $34 billion reside in the asbestos bankruptcy trusts, funds set aside from companies in bankruptcy to pay claims brought by workers who contracted asbestos-related diseases, according to estimates presented at last month's "National Asbestos Litigation Conference" produced in San Francisco by HB Litigation Conferences. The conference also featured panels of state court judges from around the country who shared their views on managing the massive ongoing asbestos litigation.

It is these two subjects - the asbestos bankruptcy trusts and the judges' handling and resolution of asbestos cases - that will be discussed in-depth at two back-to-back conferences produced by HB Litigation Conferences, this time in New York.

On Dec. 2, HB will present "The Asbestos Trusts Conference" chaired by David Bernick of Kirkland & Ellis of Chicago (www.kirkland.com) and Sander Esserman of Stutzman, Bromberg, Esserman & Plifka of Dallas (www.sbep-law.com).

On Dec. 3, HB will present "The Northeast Judicial Forum on Asbestos" chaired by Perry Weitz of Weitz & Luxenberg of New York (www.weitzlux.com) and Judy Yavitz of Reed Smith, also of New York (www.reedsmith.com) .

Both programs will be held at the Concierge Conference Center in New York City. They will be webcast and are fully accredited for continuing legal education (CLE) purposes.

A limited number of in-house counsel will be admitted for free.
