Over the past two years, two new justices have been appointed to the United States Supreme Court. Join Elizabeth Christen, Russell Chibe, and Abigail Lahn from Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP as they look at both recent and upcoming decisions, as well as the records of Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, to examine the current and future state of products liability law.

  2. Become familiar with the issues at stake in Merck Sharp & Dohme Corporation v. Albrecht, No. 17-290—considering the issue of federal preemption of state failure-to-warn claims—which will be heard by the Court this term
  3. Examine the records of newly-appointed Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh for indications as to how the Supreme Court might shift with respect to products liability law
