Dallas Attorneys Featured at Major Asbestos Litigation Event
Date:2/19/2009

DALLAS, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Four Dallas attorneys are among the who's who of asbestos litigators to assemble next month in Los Angeles to discuss emerging asbestos litigation trends and review what transpired in 2008.

Shepard Hoffman, Esq., Law Offices of Shepard A. Hoffman, LLC, Dallas, will be among a panel of litigators discussing new types of exposures while Jeffrey Simon, Esq., Simon Eddins & Greenstone and Robert Thackston of Hawkins, Parnell & Thackston, also from Dallas, will participate in a 2008 litigation review. Ray Harris of the Dallas firm Schachter Harris will participate in discussion about heavy machinery asbestos cases.

The event, March 9-11, is being produced by HB Litigation Conferences LLC, formerly Mealey's Conferences.

The conference, spanning three days at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons Hotel, is chaired by John Cooney of Chicago's Cooney & Conway, Timothy Krippner of Segal McCambridge Singer & Mahoney, Ltd., also of Chicago and Perry Weitz of New York's Weitz & Luxenberg P.C.

Cutting-edge emerging asbestos litigation issues such as household asbestos exposures and the potential liability of raw asbestos fiber suppliers are just two of the sessions at the conference. Recent household exposure verdicts and rulings as well as the science of these cases will be discussed. A frank discussion about potential defendants in raw asbestos fiber cases and the basis for liability is widely anticipated by attendees at this year's conference.

"Asbestos litigation has influenced and continues to influence all mass tort litigation that has followed it," said Tom Hagy, president of HB Litigation Conferences. "In this particular emerging asbestos litigation trends conference, attendees will have a clear sense of where we have been and the road asbestos litigation is about to go down."

That keynote speaker will be Erin Brokovich who consults with Weitz & Luxenberg and was the subject of a popular film starring Julia Roberts.

Other subjects to be covered in the Emerging Trends in Asbestos Litigation conference include: 2008 verdict and case valuation review; mesothelioma treatment update; heavy machinery asbestos exposure actions; premises liability actions; global asbestos claims issues; insurance coverage issues.

Additionally, the conference will provide attendees two timely sessions on working with the new asbestos trust framework as well additional discussion regarding the role of bankruptcy trusts.
