Lee Weatherly featured in CLM Magazine
Lee Weatherly was featured in the October 2022 edition of CLM Magazine. In a feature entitled Between the Lines, Lee and other attorneys were asked the question: Since it’s October, what is the scariest trend you are seeing in claims and litigation?
Lee’s response: “The scariest trend I’m seeing right now is the plaintiff’s focus on similar, but unrelated, past incidents for punitive damage. Large companies often have tens of thousands of employees (who are not interconnected), but plaintiffs allege that the ‘company’ failed to take action when these past events occurred, so a large verdict is the only way to make the company take action now. Companies need to be very thoughtful as to how information about past adverse events is collected and analyzed to protect themselves against this strategy.”
