Managing High-Stakes Mass Tort MDLs: Updates and Challenges from the Front Lines
Mass tort MDLs now dominate the federal judiciary dockets as sophisticated third parties fund the development of claims and harvesting of claimants, investing heavily in the “if you build it, they will come” model. Instead of being coordinated pretrial proceedings for the convenience of the parties to promote the just and efficient conduct of the litigation, some inside and outside the judiciary have come to perceive MDLs as settlement programs. Our panel will highlight MDL updates and provide a glimpse into some of the battles being waged to steer MDLs in a new direction.
