Wake up to lawsuits!

The "Litigation at Sunrise" presentations at the American Association for Justice's semi-annual conventions preview new, up-and-coming ways to sue (mostly) business. Creative, cutting-edge or far-fetched, the topics do promise additional costs to the economy and an expansion of American litigiousness.

Children's dental centers are a target? How interesting ....

AAJ's summer convention this year is July 10-14 in Vancouver, B.C., and the schedule lists two "Litigation at Sunrise Sessions." Here, then, are the topics being presented by attorneys from the United States. (Canadians are also presenting Monday but on broader areas.)
