Personal Injury Roundup No. 37 (5/22/09)

A quick announcement before we get to the Roundup: You'll be seeing some schedule shifts over the next weeks and months.  I (Bill) am becoming Western New England's Associate Dean for External Affairs and will be dialing down my posting here a bit.  I'll still do the Roundup and post fairly regularly, but not on as specific a schedule.  Thanks to Sheila and Chris for picking up my slack!

And now, on with the show, er, roundup:

Reform, Legislation, Policy

New Lawsuits

  • Weird set of facts results in lawsuit, when caregiver watching a bounce house gets smacked by a bouncer, later dies (On Point News
  • First lawsuit may be imminent in swine flu outbreak (Examiner.com)

Damages

Appeals    

  • Collection of links about the implications (many torts-related) of the Supreme Court's Iqbal decision, limiting notice pleading in the context of a Bivens action (Point of Law)

Miscellaneous

  • If you show up in the "Damages" section of the roundup with a $1 million verdict, maybe you can join the "Million Dollar Advocates Special People's Club" (okay, I added the last part).  Eric Turkewitz digs some.  Note that I will make you a pretty badge for your website for substantially less than $1,200.
