DRI Fly-In Meeting and Planning for 2012 Products Liability Conference

On Wednesday, I attended a "Fly-In" meeting for DRI's Products Liability Committee steering committee.  The meeting was held in Chicago (which, like Columbia, was sweltering hot), and the purpose of the meeting was to basically plan for the 2012 Products Liability Conference, which will be held April 11-13, 2012 at the Venetian in Las Vegas. 

We had probably around 50 attendees at the Fly-In meeting, and we talked a great deal about the conference, possible themes, speakers, and other things.  Although it is still a good ways off, go ahead and mark your calendar for the 2012 conference, as it should be a good one.  Also, if anyone has a potential topic of interest, please comment.  We are still in the planning stages, but our deadline for a draft agenda is quickly approaching, so I need ideas quickly.

It has been a busy last couple of weeks, but I hope to get back to some substantive blogging next week, including an interesting case I want to brief and maybe some additional material on warranties.
