Moderator Frederick Alimonti, joined by distinguished aviation law practitioners Abram I. Bohrer, Daniel O. Rose, and John Maggio, shares insights and experiences in aviation litigation.
The panel addresses the various components of aviation litigation. Among the myths Alimonti, Bohrer, Rose, and Maggio confront is the notion that aviation litigation is necessarily a highly specialized and technical area of the law. While this is true for certain cases, the majority of aviation litigation cases would be very familiar to the tort practitioner, often sounding in premises liability, product liability, or turning on the interpretation of contractual agreements.
Indeed, the focus of this walk through exemplar aviation litigation topics and cases will likely expand your appreciation for the breadth of cases and issues that can arise in the context of “aviation litigation." These include laws and treaties related to international travel by air; concepts of federalism and preemption, product liability, choice and conflicts of law, and insurance and indemnity – just to name a few. So “come on in, the air is fine,” and explore the surprisingly broad practice area of “Aviation Litigation.”
Good panel discussion
I was surprised by how informative and interesting the subject material was. Great job by the presenters.
Very good panel. Lot's of interesting case experience that they shared.
As a former Boeing employee, I have a greater understanding of plaintiff's arguments.
Excellent program, panel was very good
Great CLE--very informative.
One of those topics where several distinct, even adversarial voices give more insight AND often spontaneously raise good substantive issues (sometimes because chair asked dreaded open-ended questions). Good new area, plus solid insights on broad principles.
Excellent, informative program, presented by a knowledgeable panel.
Good, balanced panel.
Panel format pretty fantastic. Recommend that for more courses.
Very interesting and loved the multi-person panel!
