6700320793_a147d7d7b8_zOn Wednesday, April 29th at 11:00 AM Pacific/2:00 PM Eastern, Sedgwick’s Appellate Task Force will present its first webinar of 2015, “The California Supreme Court: What to Expect in 2015.”  We’ll preview our group’s analytical data library on the Court’s 600+ civil decisions since 2000, and take a look at the highlights of the Court’s civil docket:

  • Which Court of Appeal districts are reversed most and least often; what areas of the law the Court draws its civil docket from; whether the Court more often grants review of defense or plaintiff’s wins from the Courts of Appeal in each area of the law; reversal rates for each type of case; and which Justices tend to vote together in the most closely contested cases;
  • Will California continue to be a welcoming host to out-of state plaintiffs in complex product cases?
  • Will potential asbestos liability continue to expand 12 years after the last U.S. mine closed?
  • Who is the prevailing party when a defendant pays plaintiff for a dismissal?
