"Learning from Asbestos Lawsuits"



AEI has a panel discussion slated for Thurs., Apr. 21 in Washington. "Anup Malani, associate professor of law at the University of Virginia, and Charles H. Mullin, an economist at Bates White, will present their recent study on liability in asbestos-related lawsuits. ...Malani and Mullin estimate that this insurance system for plaintiffs adds twenty-three to sixty-six cents in bankruptcy costs for every dollar awarded in compensation." Commenting will be AEI's John Calfee and Duke's Francis McGovern. Update: video of event is here.
