Event Audio: Consumer Protection

On July 13, the Manhattan Institute Center for Legal Policy and the American Tort Reform Foundation co-sponsored a New York event, "The Growing Use and Abuse of State Consumer Protection Laws." Our initial panel included litigators who've been in the fray fighting these suits (Pfizer's Paulette Morgan, Altria's Bill Ohlemeyer, and Goodwin Procter's Ken Parsigian). The second involved intellectual/policy types to flesh out the underlying core issues, parallels, and proposed reforms (Cornell's Jim Henderson, our own Walter Olson, and ALEC's Kristin Armshaw). Shook Hardy partner and ATRA general counsel Victor Schwartz gave the (hilarious, as always) keynote address.

The transcript is forthcoming, but the audio for each speaker is available on the Manhattan Institute's events page. At the conference, the ATRF also released a paper authored by Schwartz, available here (PDF).
