COVID-19 threatens not only our health, but established norms for the role of the legal system and potentially the standards for resolving disputes involving product liability and tort law. This program addresses coronavirus realities relevant to product liability, including key aspects of the virus and the resulting government health and safety orders that have affected business operations and potential liability concerns. We will discuss the most prominent litigation issues facing businesses, such as issues of proof, standards of care, implied warranties for products, premises liability for retailers, distribution and delivery issues, and the duty to warn. Additional topics will include compliance with government orders and government ordered immunities and preemption issues.
