On Feb. 19, The Law & Economics Center at Antonin Scalia Law School held the “Symposium on the Economics and Law of Civil Remedies: Developments in Damages and Nationwide Injunctions.”

The event brought together a diverse group of scholars and experts in four panels to discuss critical remedies-related topics facing lawyers, litigants, judges, state attorneys general, state and federal government administrators, federal and state legislators, and others today. Topics included nationwide injunctions, punitive damages, high damage awards and their causes and consequences, methods of calculating damages including recent controversies over medical finance and phantom damages, and proposed and enacted legislative interventions in each of these categories.

The first panel provided “An Update on the Ongoing Debate over Nationwide Injunctions, Especially with a Change in Presidential Administration” and the panelists were:

  • Samuel L. Bray, Professor of Law, The Notre Dame University Law School
  • Scott A. Keller, Former Solicitor General, State of Texas (2015-2018)
  • Amy Marshak, Senior Counsel, Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection and Adjunct Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center
  • Michael T. Morley, Associate Professor, Florida State University College of Law
  • Moderator: Trevor N. McFadden, District Judge, US District Court for the District of Columbia
