I always enjoy going to DC (always the wannabe politician) – especially in the Spring (cherry blossoms) and when Congress is on recess. I am also looking forward to speaking at the Grocery Manufacturers Association Litigation Conference on April 7 and 8, 2010 in Washington DC.

My topic, “Secrecy, Costs, Criminal and Claimants,” is intended to prompt a bit(e) of thought on the lawyers and claims folks in attendance. My goal is to challenge them to think, not only about defending food manufacturers who have been sued in the food poisoning case, but to counsel their clients that the best way to avoid suits is not to poison their customers in the first instance. Wish me luck.
