Hot Coffee: The Politics of Tort Law
Date/Time: Thursday, November 15, 2012  04:00:PM
Location: United States

When someone says "Miller," what's the next word that comes to mind?  What about when someone says "Tort?"  Ask these questions to a nonlawyer, and she will likely respond with "Lite" and "Reform." 

Though it didn't play a big role in the presidential election, tort reform has been influential and very controversial.  Come watch a screening of the documentary Hot Coffee (about the famous McDonalds case and the politics of tort reform), then stay for a discussion with former Chief Justice of the AZ Supreme Court (and one of Arizona's brightest legal minds) Stanley Feldman.

Popcorn and, of course, hot coffee will be served.
