Nuclear Verdicts®: A Public Crisis Coming to a Courthouse Near You

May 9 at 2:00pm


Outsized jury awards. Billion-dollar verdicts. Costly decisions that imperil the livelihood and future of cities, villages, towns, and their constituents across the country. Daily news headlines and data confirm it: Nuclear Verdicts® are on the rise in both size and frequency, and leaders must be prepared to protect and defend against them. With over $14B in Nuclear Verdicts® awarded in 2023 alone and clear patterns emerging that illuminate what is driving these nuclear results, you do not want to miss this session with Susan Oliver, a partner with Tyson & Mendes. A sexual abuse and molestation expert with a wealth of trial experience and Nuclear Verdicts® expertise, Susan will dive into the surprising psychological drivers at play in the courtroom, and will empower attendees to use proven methods to stop the madness, mitigate the risk, and take back justice – for all.
