Program Number: 30288 Presenter: Clifford A. Rieders, Esq.

This highly regarded program given by Cliff Rieders over more than 20 years has not yet been done in Pennsylvania for 2020. The Annual Update of Medical Malpractice covers the leading cases not only in the last year, but also draws, typically, from the prior year or two of experience. Appellate court cases are naturally not decided in a vacuum and rely upon other recent decisions. The program is a fast-paced, concentrated, detailed review of the case law, simplified and accompanied by Rieders’ uniquely valuable PowerPoint. Unique to Cliff Rieders’ approach is the inclusion of significant Court of Common Pleas decisions and a discussion of trending topics.

COVID-19: Contract Defaults and Insurance for Lost Income (04/20/2020)

Program Number: 30109 Presenter: John R. Sigety, Esq., Ashley Veitenheimer, Esq., Donald A. Waltz, Esq.

The coronavirus has caused contract disputes in ways that we cannot fully imagine. Parties will call their attorneys asking if they can send default letters or if they have defenses for missing contractual deadlines. Terms such as "force majeure," "acts of God," "impossibility of performance," and "Oh my gosh, the contract is silent on this," will become staples of our legal diet. Calls asking, "Does this fall under my business interruption insurance?" have become common. Unfortunately, there is no one answer to all of these questions because the nature of the contract disputes vary widely depending on the industry, facts, locations and laws involved in the particular dispute. This presentation will provide general guidance and focuses on federal common law, New York law, Delaware law and Texas law.

The Future of IRS Voluntary Disclosures in a Post-OVDP World (07/18/2019)

Program Number: 2993 Presenter: Matthew D. Lee, Esq.

Following the termination last fall of its immensely successful Offshore Voluntary Disclosure Program (OVDP), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced a new regime to govern all voluntary disclosures regarding tax noncompliance. These new procedures apply to both domestic and offshore voluntary disclosures, and in many ways, they replicate the procedures under the now-shuttered OVDP. In other ways, the new procedures are significantly different, particularly the new civil penalty framework, which calls for the imposition of a 50 percent penalty on undisclosed offshore financial assets, and a 75 percent civil fraud penalty on unpaid taxes. This program will trace the history of IRS voluntary disclosure programs, review key elements of the new regime announced in November 2018, and provide guidance to practitioners considering whether voluntary disclosures are warranted.

Getting Your Ducks in a Row for the California Consumer Privacy Act (06/27/2019)

Program Number: 2985 Presenter: Sadia Mirza, Esq.

Data privacy took center stage in 2018. The European Union's (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in May 2018, and California quickly followed suit with its own privacy protection law, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA). The CCPA greatly expands privacy protections for California residents by providing greater transparency and control over how certain businesses use their personal information. Come next year, California residents will have rights similar in principle to those afforded to EU residents, including the right to access information, right to deletion, right to data portability, and the right to opt out of the sale of their personal information. Businesses subject to the CCPA need to get their ducks in a row early to comply with the CCPA, which goes into effect on January 1, 2020. During this webinar, Troutman Sanders’ attorney Sadia Mirza will cover the scope of the act, key definitions, the new rights afforded

Program Number: 29158 Presenter: Jodi S. Balsam, Esq.

The program will explore the post-Murphy world of legalized sports gambling in the U.S. in terms of what states who have authorized sports betting are doing – or not doing – to protect the integrity of the underlying athletic competitions. The program will also examine the official gambling policies of U.S. sports governing bodies, including the major professional leagues, individual sports associations, and the NCAA, and the need for private investment in integrity monitoring, and education and training of sports participants about gambling-related integrity risks.

The regulation of cannabis is one of the most controversial issues facing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the states.
