Duke University is hosting a conference this Friday, Sept. 26, 2008, on The Toxico-Legal Interface: Use of Toxicological Science in Regulation and Litigation. Co-sponsored by Duke Law School and Duke's Integrated Toxicology and Environmental Health Program, the agenda includes a number of toxicologists and risk analysts alongside law professors Francis McGovern, Joseph Sanders, Jonathan Wiener, and me. I will speak about how scientific evidence affects settlement dynamics and trial structures (particularly phased trials) in mass toxic torts. The event is open to the public.
