Putting A Dagger In The Heart Of Summary Judgment, NELA 2018 Annual Convention
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association




Summary
It is almost 20 years since the U.S. Supreme Court’s ground-breaking decision in Reeves v. Sanderson Plumbing. Properly read and applied, Reeves should have led to a marked reduction in the number of summary judgment motions filed, and the number granted. Yet we see summary judgment motions in almost all of our cases. We cannot blame that solely on recalcitrant judges. Our panelists will take an interdisciplinary approach to discussing ways in which we can convince courts actually to apply Reeves and similar cases properly and as they were intended, as well as other ideas for convincing courts to deny dispositive motions.

This course has been approved in CA, OK, VT and IL. Please see your state's MCLE site for more information or to find out if attorneys may earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission.
