Kenneth R. Feinberg, partner and founder of Feinberg Rozen and administrator of the government's two outside-the-courts victims' compensation funds for September 11 and the BP Deepwater spill discusses mass injuries and alternative dispute resolution in the American legal system. Mr. Feinberg explores the question of whether administrative claims resolution can complement, or perhaps substitute for, much modern mass litigation. Michael B. Mukasey, the 81st Attorney General of the United States, introduced Mr. Feinberg speaking at an event hosted by the Center for Legal Policy at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research.
