Relatively few suits alleging physical or economic harm due to COVID-19 were filed in 2020:
Lex Machina released its first Torts Litigation Report in November, identifying 173 tort cases related to COVID-19. Most were filed against cruise lines and nursing homes, and as Law.com reports, judges have dismissed many of them.
The largest group of COVID-19 suits were filed by businesses against their insurers. ABA Journal has the story.
