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 third panel of the day explored “Issues in Documenting and Calculating Damages: The Debate Over Medical Financing and “Phantom” Damages” and the panelists were:

  • Nicholas C. Johnson, Of Counsel, Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC
  • Drew LaFramboise, Partner, Ashcraft & Gerel
  • Lee Mickus, Partner, Evans Fears & Schuttert LLP
  • Caitlin F. Saladrigas, Partner, Holland & Knight
