conference - Mass Torts Evolve: The Intersection of Aggregate Litigation and Bankruptcy

Related to my post below about Dopesick and the opioid litigation, Samir Parikh sends word about a symposium he is organizing for Fordham Law Review that unpacks the issues at the intersection of aggregate litigation and bankruptcy, focusing on Purdue, USA Gymnastics, Boy Scouts of America, and other prominent mass tort bankruptcies register here  - https://t.e2ma.net/message/ettj4g/i485hj

great lineup and here's the description:

 

This symposium addresses the novel intersection of civil procedure and bankruptcy law.  Corporate defendants – including Purdue Pharma, Boy Scouts of America, and USA Gymnastics – facing substantial numbers of mass tort claims have filed for bankruptcy to exploit statutory loopholes and impose a new bargain on tort victims.  This interdisciplinary event will feature panels discussing bankruptcy preemption and multidistrict litigation, due process, representation issues regarding unidentified victims, settlement dynamics in complex cases, and victims’ rights.

“The Court believes that these individuals have given a distorted meaning to the COVID-19 vaccine, rather than recognize the vaccine for what it is—an effective and safe means of minimizing transmission and illness.“

Where is the Data that affirms this is, in fact, factual?
