Come for the Opioids, Stay for the Civil Procedure

Last week, I sat down with Nicolas Terry, who hosts the podcast, The Week in Health Law. We discussed the role of repeat players in multidistrict litigation leadership (on both sides), the functions and control of MDL judges, the ongoing opioid litigation, and my new book--Mass Tort Deals: Backroom Bargaining in Multidistrict Litigation.

Twihl_20x20 If you're interested in the opioid suits and online reading is more your style, then you might prefer the conversation that Jenn Olivia and I had, which is written up on Harvard Law's Bill of Health (click on the icon below).  While you're on the blog, you'll find lots of useful information if you search by category: Opioid Crisis.

Does Multidistrict Litigation Deny Plaintiffs Due Process?

As part of Law 360's focus on access to justice, I published this perspectives piece on MDL: Does Multidistrict Litigation Deny Plaintiffs Due Process?  It's freely accessible through the link without requiring any log-in information. 

I thought it might be of interest to readers of our blog because of its topic and its focus on the Opiate proceeding before Judge Polster.
